Account Expiration: 7 calendar days including registration date. This allows you time to prepare and send your "user email", as well as time for the user to actually see the email, which is why we don't count the day of registration. Then count 5 calendar days, which is the date you'll give your users (since access expires at Midnight on that date), then choose the next calendar day as the date you enter in this field.
Access Level should be "User A."
Use the "elevator bar" on the right edge of the course list to scroll through the course list. Check the box for the course that this lawyer will take.
