Feedback on our online courses

Inspire MediLaw’s report-writing course was the perfect introduction to a complex area. The step-by-step nature of the materials allowed me to gain incremental knowledge and gain confidence in the process. Moreover, it was genuinely enjoyable!

Nadir Osman, Consultant Urologist

I really enjoyed the course and did not feel it was less worthy for being online. The content was excellent and it has given me confidence in my fledgling medico-legal practice. The session at the end with Isabel was very useful and she gave me about 40 minutes of her time, which was great.
