    The two ethics presentations were very good. The Pace personal coaching session was terrible and, in the few moments it had any relevancy, expressed points obvious to even the most junior attorneys.

    Great presentation on all topics

    I found the course on mindfulness by Kiele to be very unexpectedly useful and a great presentation. THe other two were also interesting and informative. Once of the best ethics presentations I have taken!

    The political slant of the first presentation has no place in mandatory CLE, especially in ethics credits. The copyright discussion was largely an entertaining free for all with knowledgeable speakers. Generally a good collection of presentations. Thanks.

    Interesting presentations in a variety of areas of the law.

    good presenters

    I thought Michael Curry's "speech" was poor. The rest was good.

    Great civics lesson on what lawyers can do for democracy under attack. Surviving spouse lecture was very thorough as far as engagement letters.

    Good ideals, but not sure how easy it is to put the ideals into practical action. People do not revere lawyers anymore. The commercials have solidified that. As I saw on a forum the other day, "98% of lawyers give the other 2% a bad name." And, with social media, it is impossible to stop or refute disinformation. Several years ago I tried doing that. My blood pressure shot through the roof, I had to get on medication, and thankfully I got off social media to get myself back in check.

    I would include much more details in situations suggesting attorneys are not involved in protecting democracy. Often attorneys are most concerned about successful practice of law for clients.

    Excellent CLE, very informative and timely

    great

    Very good analysis of our history and current state with a focus on characteristic which threaten us.

    Loved ted lasso presentation. Democracy session would be better if speaker did not read script.

    For the game show portion (Wait Wait...), the audience's responses / solutions to various games/puzzles, were inaudible because they had no microphones. So, for future reference, someone who has a mic should be sure to repeat back what the audience member said.

    Loved it

    Some highly relevant topics and some not relevant at all.

    Y'all had really good speakers for most of the classes! The Ted Lasso ethics class was fun, a bit different from other ethics classes I've taken.

    Very informative and well presented

    I really loved the Ted Lasso one.
