Calendaring Video Testimonials

From Practitioners

“Julie’s California calendaring video is an invaluable tool that is now a required resource in my firm. Her explanation of the complex calendaring of deadlines in California courts is the best I’ve ever seen; she successfully infuses the obscure and highly technical subject matter with her engaging teaching style and terrific personal touch.  Helpful exercises are included, Julie alerts you to recent and possible future changes in deadline computation, and the motions calendaring section is particularly useful.  Given the clear importance of fixing deadlines accurately, the inexpensive video is an outstanding value.  Anyone who calendars deadlines in California courts, even those with considerable experience, can benefit enormously from this wonderful product.”

Matt Norris, Norris Law Group, P.C., Los Angeles, CA

“I really appreciated your discussion of CCP 12c, eFiling and proposed changes in the law.  As always, your presentation of the material was clear and easy to understand.   The video is a very helpful resource.  I wish I had this when I was first learning calendaring!  Thank you!”

Ellen Houser, Paralegal/Office Administrator

From Instructors

 

“Julie Goren’s calendaring video has something for everyone! Novices and people who have been working in the legal field for years, will learn the ins and outs of this most important legal-related skill. These code sections can be so confusing! Ms. Goren makes calendaring less overwhelming with her four, clear steps of calendaring. Ms. Goren takes the viewer through the steps, including careful review of each of the applicable rules, in a logical, and organized manner. As an educator in a BA Legal Studies and paralegal certificate program, I required my students to watch the calendaring video. Then we did more calendaring exercises in class. Having the opportunity to see the rules explained in the video, learn the common calendaring mistakes, and go through exercises at their own pace, was the key to my students’ success in grasping the terms and rules of calendaring. My students and I loved this video, and know it will help those who watch it with calendaring.”

“I wanted to tell you how incredible the video is on calendaring.  Anyone who is involved in litigation or scheduling should purchase and watch this video, including every software manufacture who markets a deadline or calendaring program. There are some attorneys and paralegals I know personally who NEED this video as they are doing it wrong and it is only a matter of time, before their faulty calendaring catches up with them. I have taught and engaged in calendaring for over 20 years and I learned a few things I didn’t know from watching the program.  It was also nice to see that some of the things I believed to be correct in my teaching and practice were in fact correct.  Thank you for letting me check out the video.”

“Your video is terrific. It is full of great information that is thoughtfully presented.”

“I thought your calendaring video was great. I did end up showing it to the class. It had quite an impact — although being new to the process, many were a bit surprised at the complexity of the rules. Thank you for creating it! I would definitely use it again.”
