I would highly recommend The College of Law Masters to anybody because not only is it very practical but it’s taught well and it’s immediately applicable to one’s day-to-day practice.

The coursework has been absolutely relevant to my daily practice. The material that was provided to us throughout the course is constantly being used by me throughout my practice.

I found it really useful that a lot of the work was actually done by teleconference. Working in my own practice this means I don’t have to take days and days off work.
