    Best program available, every session is packed with important and useful information. I have taken a lot of CLE courses & NELI’s are by far the most practical and most well presented.

  5. Partner, Ogletree Deakins Boston, MA

    The program was excellent. Please tell David that I attended NELI 20 years ago as I was just starting out, and this year when I saw that it was going to be a webinar, I sent my entire team to attend and did so myself just to make sure I had made the right call – David was better than ever, the program was top notch, and I feel like I’ve been engaging with the experts for the entire program because of the new format. Really appreciate the energy you all put into this and am so lucky to have been able to see it in action!

  6. Employment Law Director, Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, FL

    I was very impressed with this Webinar. By far, one of the best Webinars that I attended. At first, I was going to cancel because the thought of sitting through 3-Days of a Webinar was not appealing to me, but because of the presenters’ engaging presentation of the course material, the Webinar was excellent. I am glad that I did not cancel. Thanks

  7. Professor, University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire, WI

    Great Conference, Great Speakers, Great Hotel which is as usual for NELI. Best Conference I attend all year
