    I liked the different methods used to teach and learn during the course - ie. being paired or put in groups with different people to review case studies.

    Some of the case studies were quite complicated and technical for someone without a law background. Making them simpler would allow more time for thinking about the procurement-related questions associated with the case study, rather than spending most of the time trying to understand the situation being described in the case study.
