More useful than what I heard in law school

I was using this as a refresher and update to my general knowledge, for my personal use. This touches on all questions I had. The pointers sometimes extend even to costs of various alternatives. There are suggestions of when lawyer assistance is more imperative, or less. It is nice to have the somewhat greater distance than is found in some seminars where the presenter is imperceptably moving into a sales pitch.

The presenters seem not to be professional narrators. They talk fast, and I found a slow setting better for listening. Also, there are occasional plugs for their website. However, these were not obtrusive, and stood beside lots of good solid information.

The standard disclaimer is, there is no substitute on any legal matter for consulting with a trusted lawyer. But this is a great introduction for anyone.
