Enjoyed the live sessions and opportunity to interface with other professionals in the pretrial field.
I found that I got value out of everything that we were assigned to do... I also found it a good opportunity to reflect on how we do things and how we can change things for the better.
“Interesting and Refreshing Learning Experience”
