The only benefit in going to class is signing the attendance form to not be dropped. She has powerpoints, but won't post them; her lectures do not tell you what the rules are. She spends too much time on things that aren't important, and the stuff you need, is unclear. You will leave more confused than when you enter, and end up teaching yourself.

This class is worst class I have ever taken. She was 200 pages behind, constantly demeaning to her students, and goes thru 10 pages a day in class. I would recommend her if you liked Prof Umbridge.

Probably the best professor I have ever had in my life. I had no interest in torts before her class, and ended up loving it! She will help you if you seek it, whenever. She loves teaching and is committed to her profession. Pay attention and participate in class...really pays off in the end! Absolutely loved this class.

Great prof. Not as bad as everyone thinks. Actually very helpful and friendly if you get to know her.

Prof. Moore is an odd woman. Very friendly outside of the classroom but a less than pleasant professor in the classroom. Her "test" was awful. MC was poorly worded. The essay was a jumbled mess. Her recitation? Brutal. Her lecture? Not clear and difficult to hear since she refused to use her microphone. Avoid if possible.

Prof. Moore is by far one of the best; if not the best Professor in law school. Negative comments are likely from people who did poorly in her class, have lack of discipline, and are not acountable to their class preparation. She is thurough, strict, and demanding but you will leave her class a better student and will know the material in and out.

I have never EVER had a worse professor. She may be knowledgeable about the law but she has no clue how to teach it. Regardless of having a mandatory text she required reading from another text (which somedays she only posted the day before class) that were upwards up 100 pages. She caters to students who fawn over her

The test is very manageable. Meet with her after class to do practice tests. Professor Moore has a good heart and cares about students. Unfortunately, her calling is not teaching. She belongs in an advisor/academic counselor role, not as a lecturer. She cannot coherently express complex ideas. You will be stressed out if you take her courses.

The worst professor I have ever had to deal with. She is not organized, very dry, rude and thin skinned. Her final is very hard, mainly because she puts together super confusing hypo's and gives little direction. Her lectures are also worthless, you will teach yourself this material. Please do yourself a favor and avoid this professor at ALL costs.

Had Moore for Torts 1 and Property 1. Torts 1 - she was a pretty good prof. Prop. 1 - worst professor of my college career, literally. Emailed students exam material the night before the final exam! She lacked an understanding of material. Openly favored some students by sending them texts.

Professor Moore is the best professor. She is extremely helpful, if you go to her office she will allow you to do practice exams and give your tips to succeed. It is wise to do this because she will ensure you will do well. She is strict but I like it because she tells you exactly how she wants you to answer questions on the exam! Very structured.

For all the whiners and haters - grow up..Professor Moore knows her stuff and she is tough on first year students..well when you get in the real world the judge will be the same way...she was very helpful if you asked and even met students on the weekend..I got through the class with a B+ and if you can succeed in her class then you will succeed.

Professor Moore mumbles and becomes flustered when asked to repeat herself. Everything I learned in Property I was self-taught; if I asked her a question, I walked away even more confused. She only calls on a select-few: those that frequent her office hours. I feel sorry for you if you get her.

Think of her like an overrated first round pick. On paper looks very qualified, but the truth of the matter is she is NOT good. Vindictive, Takes grudges out on the class, Is consistently late turning in grades, Egocentric, refuses to let people go to the bathroom, constantly wastes class time (YOUR MONEY). If you have the choice DONT TAKE HER

If you happen to be unlucky and get her, pray that she likes the class. Shes vindictive and will hold grudges against the entire class like a pre schooler. She lives in her own world, filled with law and law school. Prevents students from going to the bathroom and even forces them to attend classes outside the normal meeting time.

Prof Moore is amazing. She expects a lot from her students, but this is law school. It isn't supposed to be easy. She stayed with my class really late the night of the exam to make sure we understood what she wanted. Awesome woman.

Do not take this professor unless you want to be called out for going to the bathroom. Final was difficult simply b/c class was completely different than what she tested on. Take Rensberger. He may be hard, but at least he is fair. Recitation is a waste of everyone's time. She mumbles, is a low talker, and speaks much to fast. AVOID LIKE THE PLAUGE

Moore loved my class, but not me so much. I think she's a bit overrated. She is available outside of class to go over sample essays or answer questions, but you have to seek her out and work with her schedule...she had more time for some people. Learn her rules and only her rules. Her exam is difficult, but not impossible if you practice.
