“I studied this course as I’d heard good things about it – I really enjoyed the practical elements such as advocacy training, and learning how to speak and conduct myself in professional environments like courtrooms. We also learned how to draft court documents, and this hands-on approach to learning has really helped me put my studies into practice in my current role.
