Hi Wendy

Just a note to let you know that I received my Law Diploma in the mail today and it arrived in perfect condition.
Although I am employed in a family business and not a legal environment, the knowledge that I gained has been extremely useful as I am the Accountant and look after all the legal and corporate aspects of the business. It was a great feeling to receive As on all my assignments and I thank you again for some very informative, and at times, challenging courses. For me I have gained a vast amount of knowledge and personal development and I really enjoyed all of the courses.
Thanks again to you and Abbey and I wish you continued success.

Very best regards.
“Dear Wendy, Thank you very much for your comments. Much appreciated! I'm happy to say I am enjoying the course very much. What I have learnt has 
helped me to advise my friend about his entitlement to Legal Aid.”
