This course fulfills an exceptional necessity! English common law has had immense impact throughout the globe and the professor did his best to allow the participants to view it from an eagles perspective. The assessment method was rigorous and meticulous at the same time, yet the sound quality of the video lectures is open for improvement.

the history and present tied in perfectly in the end. course was easy to understand

Excellent Course!! In one simple sentence, the Course provides what it promises. Thanks to Prof. Adam Gearey's remarkable lectures. I've already become his die hard fan after going through his lectures. I'm looking forward to do more of such courses related to law in the UK and EU as I'm keenly interested to practice law in the UK and EU in future :)

This course was a great taster for the English Common Law Bar. I also enjoy the post course catch-ups with Professor Adam Gearey via social media.
