I recommend taking Fed. Jurisdiction with Perry. Your entire grade comes from the midterm and final, so there's no useless busywork. Admittedly he can be hard to follow during lecture, but he has long office hours and encourages students to come. After an average grade on the midterm, I went to his office every week and got a high A on the final.

Dr. Perry... (he insists that we call him Cliff)... I address him as 'Dr. Perry' because he deserves it. Brilliant, energetic, hilarious, genuinely concerned if you learn or not. He will bend over backwards for you. He wants you to ask questions... so that he can help. TAKE HIM! GO TO CLASS! ASK FOR HELP IF NEDDED! Best Professor at Auburn.

If you are thinking of going to law school TAKE THIS CLASS. And every class you can with Dr. Perry. You should even actually read the assignments sometimes. Learning to read cases is a skill, and if you develop it before law school you will have an advantage. Even at a T14, I feel like taking his classes made me more prepared than many of my peers.

I also took POLI 5170, 3370 and 3360 with him. Brilliant man and always open to discussion or questions because his legal vocabulary can confuse anyone. Incredibly helpful during office hours as well. Always curves tests. Never made lower than a C. Must read on your own to keep pace for B and above grades. Highly recommend

Dr. Perry (Klif) was my teacher years ago. Great. Intriguing. Inspirational. (I ended up in the same field.) Always willing to discuss the issues, adding more than class-time allowed. Take his class if you want to learn how to think clearly about current issues. You'll remember what you learned. Not easy, though. You'll need to study.

This was the most boring class that I have ever taken which is why it is so hard. He uses to many big words in class and on both tests so its hard to decipher what he means. He only offers two tests and thats it. If you don't do good on the first one then a withdrawal is going to be necessary.

Cliff has a wonderful understanding and enthusiasm for the subjects he teaches. I have taken two law courses from him and feel enlightened after class. It is a CONCEPTS no facts he teaches and, it is I feel excellent prep. for law school.

HE is AMAZING! i took him for evidence and i also had him for health law. i went in the youngest in both classes and i was terrified. He is really smart and does use elaborate language but if you go to class and do the reading you will be fine. And if not you can go to his office hours with questions and he will help you with anything!

Great class - one midterm and a final with a generous curve on each. Took as an elective as a biomedical science major and, even though it was very foreign, I found the material very interesting. Looked forward to going to class - Clif is hilarious and extremely smart. Would definitely recommend the class.

Amazing teacher. He may seem hard, but I am currently in law school and am very glad that I took him during my undergraduate education. It is because of him that I am flying through the first year of law school. Definitely take him (seriously).

Interesting class, but could not understand a thing! He tries to use vocabulary that is too hard for an average person to understand. I literally wrote a list of words he used that I didn't understand and had to look them up in the dictionary!It felt like he unnecesarily made the class harder. Besides that, he was interesting guy.

Dr. Perry is pretty cool. I'm reasonably sure he does use a large amount of narcotics. Class was reasonably in depth, but presented in a simple way. Went kind of deep to get across points that turned out to be simple. High use of the textbook, but reading before class isn't a MUST, it just helped. I'm going to take him again

Had Perry for Medical Ethics. By far, the most interesting and enjoyable class I had in college (and I was on the 7 year plan).

I have taken every class he teaches and he is AMAZING!!!! He puts multi-state bar exam questions on his tests but I'm not kidding, if you have ANY interest in law, you will LOVE HIM! Read the cases, take notes in class, ASK QUESTIONS and STUDY! He'll make the class worth your while!

Of all the teachers I have ever had, he is by far the most intelligent. If you aren't serious about law don't even bother. He operates way above the intellect of most people. Those who have said he is not a good instructor were probably upset because they lacked the interest or acumen to be there in the first place.
