The course delivers all it's supposed to and more. It's informative, educational and entertaining. The way the content is presented is varied; there are animated videos to introduce problems, articles helping to understand and organize the information from the videos of legal discussions, some amazing videos allowing a glimpse into the minds of distinguished lawyers, all kinds of useful links, also the whole guide to how to look for law-related information from Monash University Librarian and comprehensive feedback sessions from the course educator and its mentor. This course is perfect.

The course went far and beyond what I expected, I feel as if I have just started a degree in Law. It didn't just talk at me, it encouraged me to read and discover aspects of law in my country that I had never thought about and also to be more aware of my actions and of those around me. I appreciate the whole team for this high standard course. I will surely recommend this to my friends

Content was interesting, relevant and important to our every day lives. Instructors were clear, engaging, friendly and interactive with one another and with learners. Futurelearn is intuitive, attractive to look at and integrated with email just enough.

An outstanding learning opportunity. The course was superbly designed and executed by the team at Monash Univ. I appreciated the structure, content, pace, video inputs from very learned judges, pace, the challenges presented (great for engagement), the wide community of learners - in fact I can hardly think of anything to improve. It took me nearer five hours a week than three, but that may be due to my interaction and what I chose to do rather than the course design.
