Boring class. The teacher knows the information though and is easy to talk to. No attendance. Three test only, no final! All test are curved too!

She has a very interesting approach to her teaching methods but it helped me pay attention. I would go to lecture because that is where the tests come from. i never read the book or studied and am going to receive a B.

Tough instructor but well taught class. 3 tests, no papers, does not take attendance but do show up or you will slip on the exams. Uses good examples (picks on people in front row). Fast paced instructor but knows the material well. Curved tests!

Awesome teacher! Must show up to lectures to know whats on tests, Notes will be your best friend in this class, bring a recording device if you are a slow writer. Laptops can be used but are not recommended if you are easily distracted,

She is a great lecturer. She gets the information out clear! If you read the textbook and take notes in class you will do fine. She is very different. Sometimes sounds crazy, but it helps you learn.

She keeps her lectures short, but full of info! Pretty much everything discussed in class for notes will be on the tests, so she doesn't bother with giving you a ton of info you don't need to know. Grades are based on: 3 tests, 2 case briefs, 1 IRAC paper, and a short legal research explanation. Take Pol 475 if you've done well in her other classes

VERY clear on notes. Definitely intense lectures, you will NOT fall asleep thats for sure. Gives great examples, most of which are then again used on the tests. Tests are all multiple choice or true/false with a huge curve. No work outside of 3 tests. Attendance not mandatory, but you don't want to miss the notes from class. Don't buy the book.

I always enjoyed listening to this woman lecture. She uses very dramatic tone and is a tough woman, which I respect. The papers she assigns are annoying and her rules change every time but overall I would recommend this class.

This lady is insane....ly awesome! She's slightly off her rocker, but she knows her stuff. She's very flexible - she'll push back exam/due dates if you tell her you're behind. Lectures are incredibly fast-paced: sit down, buckle up, and don't lose focus for even a second.

Her enthusiasm may scare you at first, but once you realize that it is just her personality, you'll realize she's really an AMAZING professor. It is the typical college class: lecture/notes,& test. If you pay attention and READ the chapter BEFORE class, you'll really benefit. She's VERY helpful, don't be afraid to approach or ask questions. GREAT!

Very intense prof but in a good way. I'd say if you show up to class and study your notes you will do well in this course. The essays are not hard but it takes a while to get into the mindset she is looking for in the writing. The papers are really up to you, if you make a point to turn them in she has them back with comments the next day to pick u
