My course at Udemy, links and coupon codes

I have created a new course at Udemy to introduce many aspects of law to everyone.

This course is for almost anyone who wants to learn about law.

Why you should take the course

Law affects us all personally and professionally.

Knowledge of law is not just for lawyers. We can and should learn about it. Just like we learn about our health without becoming doctors, and learn about our car without becoming auto mechanics.

We are a nation of laws so I think our citizenry should have basic knowledge of the system of rules for our society and government. If you live in the United States this basic foundation in legal knowledge is good for you and the country.

Why I built the course

I have built courses and resources for students and audiences at a variety of levels, from undergraduate, graduate, law school, and professional. I realized it was time to share some of that with a broader audience.

I wanted to try another platform -- Udemy. In this online setting, my lectures are planned, recorded, and then available for anyone who desires to see it, anywhere in the world, and at an excellent value for the learner. The reach can be broader. And I don't have to grade, which is my least favorite aspect of formal education teaching!

Value for you the student

I think this course is an excellent value. I believe I am well qualified to teach it, and provide quality information in a simple, straightforward, and streamlined manner. We cover a lot of material in a short time, but you have the rewind button, supplementary free articles (that I have written, refined, and continually improve) and the ability to ask questions.

I priced the course low -- as low as Udemy allows. Because of the length of the course (over 2 hours), I could not offer it for free under Udemy's rules. I also realize that for some, "free" means less valuable or they assume it is simply advertising or marketing. So there is a cost, and the value is excellent for the right student to obtain a lot of knowledge delivered efficiently and clearly.

Also, Udemy occasionally discounts the price as part of their normal promotional process.

Even without any coupon code or promotional discount, this course is an excellent value, and I priced it as low as I could for a course of this length.

Value for me

The value for me is not financial, but the feeling that I have provided valuable knowledge to a broader audience on an important subject.

Law can seem confusing to non-lawyers. We all play a role in this nation of laws.

If you find my work valuable, the value to me is if you communicate that to me and others. If you have constructive and kind feedback, I appreciate hearing that too.

Yes, I do receive some author royalties and commissions for the course, but this financial remuneration is tiny! I have priced this as low as possible for this 3+ hour course.


If you are looking for entertainment, comedy routines, fancy graphics, and awesome video editing tricks, this course is not for you.

It is no-nonsense information and knowledge with bullet point PowerPoint slides, trying to pack the most important legal nuggets of a body of law into a seven minute (or so) lecture.

I am not an entertainer, and I probably never will be.

This course isn't for everyone, but it is for some (reminds me of a great country song).

The reviews

The reviews are trickling in and I am now over a 66% percent approval rating. That is amazing considering how hard it is to get supermajority consensus. See for example the U.S. Congress now, the 2022 Georgia Senate election, and the 2020 Presidential election, and most issues today.

Here's a summary of the reviews, highlighting the positive trend:

  • First review "... He dont even take time to explain the things... I...was hopeful to learn the legal system of US. But I was totally disappointed"
  • Second review "Excellent!"
  • Third review: "... a fantastic introduction! .... I like how he presents the subject matter, and I like how he gets right to the point."

I realize that even if I made the perfect course (which I haven't yet) some people will not like it. And a few will take pleasure in leaving a rude review.

This course is not for everyone, a solid understanding of English is needed, and the ability to tolerate a seven minute no nonsense lecture where I try to provide the essential basics of one area of law.


I think I built a good course to introduce law to non-lawyers.

I put a lot of effort and time into it, and maybe it is right for you, and provides you with knowledge and understanding that will help you.
