Details and courses

Great speaker making the course relevant and not just reading verbatim. Huge help and one of the best courses i have been on. 

Mena and Graham's fountain of knowledge was invaluable to the course. Reference to scenarios and common/unique cases supported implementing theory into practice. I enjoyed Graham's light hearted humor - very experience facilitators. 

Great trainers - really enjoyed. 

Excellent introduction to family law. Very experienced trainers and great venue. 

I love your courses. I've already dragged my colleague to this one and soon I'll bring the whole office! Keep up the good work.

A thorough and detailed review of family law practice and procedure. Very useful.

A very useful and informative course for those at any level wishing to brush up on their family law knowledge.

An excellent course, covering a huge amount and particularly useful at highlightng key areas to look out for.
