Feedback from previous attendees

“It was thoughtfully organised, flexible enough to be amenable to discussion and the teacher was extremely knowledgeable and very easy to engage with.”

"Having attended various introductions to copyright over the last 7 years, I feel very lucky to have attended this course and I really admired the way the content was structured and presented. I think it gave the impression of an instructor with an in depth knowledge of the subject who has put a lot of thought in communicating to others. I found the criteria and considerations presented, most useful and I will certainly be using these when instructing others."
