Some of the lectures seem very promotional and biased towards trade agreements at times but there is a lot of good detailed information presented how these trade agreements work. It also provides access to good resources for more indepth study. The instructors are difficult to understand at times because english is a second language but fortunately the transcripts are visible so you can read what they are saying. Overall I do think it was a good course worth taking however they did completely fail to discuss the primary public concern of trade agreements being the Investor-State lawsuit provisions. They ignored the elephant in the room when it comes to current trade agreements.
