Este ha sido el mejor curso que he tomado para poder comprender los principios y fundamentos del common law, muchas gracias!

Excellent course & professor. I'd love the exams very much. Thanks a lot coursera & London university

Very interesting introduction course. I reckon it would be more effective if the weekly tests were as the final one: a case study focusing on the week's subject

Great course. Explains a lot about the foundations and the current state of common law. For me, as a law practicioner from a civil law country (Brazil), it provided me with a great knowledge of the subject. I recommend!
