During the law programs, as Pete explains specific statutes and regulations, he'll have you make notes in the margins and inside cover of the book. In the advocacy programs, Pete and Pam wll explain concepts in Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy, 2nd Edition and describe ways to improve your advocacy skills. You'll find these notes extremely helpful later.
