OK, but 5 hours in, "Conflicts" ends, Bonus starts
I bought this to refresh on the topic (some 35+ years after law school) generally, in prep for further study on newer Internet issues. In this, it met my expectations. It repeated all the concepts and main cases I heard in law school, with a few newer leading cases layered on. The explanation was as muddy and middling in quality as I remembered it, but for a law student, this is the topic as it was classically taught to me. (I could do better, but that's another story.) On law and cases specific to the Internet, this audio has a passing mention but really very little, which was mildly surprising. Some of the general concepts given here do apply, but this must be assumed by the listener, in the absence of legal authorities on point. Are law schools and bar exams this vague on this crucial practical area? I don't know. It would be very frustrating as a business owner to hire for Internet advice a law school grad as much in the woods as this hoary old material would leave the newbie. Law students, especially in business law, I hope you will dig further! But again, my own (modest) expectations were met here.
Per my MP3 device's clock, the "Conflicts" part ended a few minutes shy of exactly 5 hours in. The "Bonus" audio(s) then started. I stopped listening there. This suggests that the remaining 7 hours, 40 minutes marketed to me is the "2 bonus audios" which, without listening to them, but by title, appear to be the exact same ones bundled into all the rest of this legal series of titles. This is annoying.
However, I have continued to buy and listen to this series, as I haven't found any more cost-effective way to get audio refreshers on the basics in these topics. And such explanation as IS provided, is acceptable in quality.
The narrator is pleasant, with a low error rate. His mispronouncing the simple word "substantive" hundreds of times was a mild peeve.
