New York State Court Judge The interns reported that your presentation on computer law/intellectual property has enhanced their understanding of that area of our jurisprudence. Your efforts contributed significantly to the success of this year’s program.

Professor of Graphic Design, SUNY Fredonia. Your knowledge and your enthusiasm for the subject of copyrights, trademarks and fair use was so apparent – and so appreciated! Several of the students commented the next day that they were afraid it would be dull and boring but instead they found the subject interesting even though sometimes difficult. The handout you provided was also a plus; it is thorough and will be a good resource for them as they (hopefully) take their course notebook for support and guidance on the job next year. … I'll always appreciate your willingness to support my students--above and beyond what I would ever dream of asking you to do.
