Remed001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

In retrospect a good teacher.900 pages of reading. Challenging but manageable pace.She seems to actually care about whether or not students understand material, as long as you show effort. Seems like a nice person and was approachable for clarification.Difficult exam,but doable.She won't tell you everything on exam, when she says it will be,listen!

ETHICADR Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I love Prof. Cooper. I've had her for 2 classes and I'm taking a third next semester. She's very approachable, fair, but doesn't allow nonsensical rants and cuts people off when needed. When she asks questions not explicitly covered in class (re: crim law complaints) she's rewarded those that READ instead of just show up.

ADR100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

One of the worst professors I have ever had. Had her for alternative dispute resolution and learned nothing. She grades according to how much she likes you. If you want to get a good grade in her class you have to pretend to care about her life story and try to suck up to her.

CrimD02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Cooper is a very fair teacher. I think people improperly direct complaints at her when they underestimate the amount of nuance in Crim. Law. People assume it's easy from the go and are disappointed in May. Get this book (978-1422429877) and outline it. If you do, you'll do well. Period. She loves it and teaches right from it. Thank me later.

crimd2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Normally I only read comments about other professors on this site but I wanted to take time to say that Professor Cooper is the WORST teacher at NESL. she is disrespectful and if you're not on her good side she is a huge **** and won't answer your questions. her class is horrible and i learned nothing. i will never take another course from her.

I felt like Prof Cooper did a great job explaining the material and was very receptive to feedback. She is extremely fair and warm. I would take a class with her again without question.

CrmLe1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

as a Crim Law professor, she is nuts. Crazy classroom discussions that don't necessarily go anywhere useful. The exam was tough but didn't find her to be a hard grader thankfully as I didn't learn much in this class.

crimcrim Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely awful professor. She used to teach undergrad and never practiced law...and you can tell. She uses power points to teach the class and reads straight from them. She chose to focus on homicide for the majority of the semester rather than teaching us about any other topic that is on the bar, like rape. Her exam was also ridiculous.
