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

MOST AMAZING PROFESSOR I HAVE EVER HAD!!!! HE MADE CRIMINAL PROCEDURE FUN AND EASY TO LEARN. THE PEOPLE WHO POST THAT HE WAS A BAD PROFESSOR OBVIOUSLY WERE NOT INTERESTED IN CRIMINAL PROCEDURE AND SHOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN HIS CLASSES AND WASTED HIS TIME. HE'S A LEGEND AND I HAVE ENJOYED TAKING EVERY ONE OF HIS CLASSES! TAKING CRIM PRO ADJUDICATION NOW

I took all I could from this Professor - CrimPro Adj, 456, Adv.Crim. He's not a pop star, but I am now a crim. defense lawyer and the bulk of what I know is from Professor Preiser. His class is fast paced, he is exacting in what he wants on exam, and the classes are hard. But once you've learned it, you can do it in court which is all that counts

Professor covers ungodly amount of material and tests on most of it. Necessary to do all the reading and listen to every word he says. Expert in his field though, literally wrote the book, so it's well worth the trouble.

crim456 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Covers everything that you need to know, and does so quickly. If you read the voluminous handouts, you'll probably do well on his very fair exams. Sometimes loses his train of thought and tells stories, but still more knowledgeable than most profs.

Preiser is tough naturally, but this class will teach you alot, if you do the work. The test is actually not that difficult, but that's because I took 456 first which was insane. Still, this class is absolutely necessary if you plan to practice criminal law, and know what you're doing.

I think that it might be time for him to retire. I lost count of how many times he said he had 3 points to make and only made 2. He doesn't call on anyone, which can be good and bad. With the voluminous reading and a killer exam, you'd better not have too many other exams lined up if you want to do well. I like his stories though.

Great teacher. You've really got to listen carefully during his class, there will be a lot of assigned reading and he will spent about 30 seoncds on each case, but he tells you exactly what you need to know. Pay attention, write down exactly what he says and you'll be golden. He tests mainly on case holdings and hypos he gives in class.
