This intro to PPE had a huge amount of reading, but she was very clear in lecture. Definitely worth it if you're interested in the material

Law and Philosophy is a great course! I was extremely intimidated at first, but the class is not THAT bad. Simply do the reading, attend EVERY lecture and pay attention. The class consists of three papers and an essay-based final. Anderson is clear and very, very, very smart.

Very interesting class. She is very clear in lecture and is willing to help students outside of class. She is very knowledgeable about the subject and obviously loves teaching it. However, this is by no means an easy class. There is a significant amount of reading and it is very hard to get an A. Take it only if you have an interest in the subject.

Anderson is one of the worst professors I've ever had, possibly one of the worst at U of M.

She's a decent professor, but the class is graded on a pseudo curve where only 2-3 members of a section get any type of A. Need good writing and analysis skills. You can't BS the essays. Hard final. Good class to take right before law school, but you might want to avoid it fresh/soph. year.

Dr. Anderson is tough but fair (meaning that she'll always tell you exactly why you didn't get the A). She encourages students to investigate topics of particular interest to the student, and is always availible for office hours.

Everything an instructor should be. Classes were always stimulating and informative. She is merciful when it comes to sometimes stressful student live. Inspired me to take more classes related to the subject matter.

Style was interesting, but she sometimes talked in circles.

If you are an honors student who took Great Books, don't pay attention to the comments regarding the "massive" amount of reading - it pales in comparison. Anderson is the best discussion section leader at UofM (after class was over, many were vocal about how sad they were to leave, and one person even took a picture to remember the class).

Great professor and class. Lots of reading though and depends on which GSI you get. Really hard grading too.

Terrible class. So boring. Too much reading and way too much studying for the exam. Do not take this class unless you have Jeff Billings as a GSI

She's a brilliant woman and the class is REALLY interesting. The reading amount is rediculous but you only have to write 3 papers and complete one test...not so bad. You'll be glad you took the class for the insight and knowledge you gain, however the grade may not be as pleasing. I still recommend it. PS: david dick is a phenomenal GSI!

Probably the most tedious class yet. Reading is INSANE! Expect to read at least 80+pages a week out of a MASSIVE coursepack. Wouldn't recommend it if you don't like reading a lot!
