One of the nicest and coolest teachers I've had at UD. Leaves exam dates and some details about questions up to student vote. You have to read a lot of cases, but theyre not hard and the exams questions are clear. Not a bad class to fill a law requirement.

My favorite professor so far at UD! He's definitely always considerate of his students. Three exams which are all multiple choice and very straight forward. And one presentation where you can literally read off your laptop from your seat. So easy & VERY interesting class.

Rambles forever. Can talk and talk for hours. He's a good guy but it's extremely hard to pay attention in class. No textbook. Three multiple choice exams and a really easy presentation you do from your seat. Pretty easy to get at least a B.

Blacker is such a good guy. He's extremely down to earth, willing to work with you, and sets you up to succeed in the class. Although he says "um" upwards of 150 times per class (I counted on my first day), he is very clear, interesting, and knowledgeable. Take his class, He's awesome

Such a nice guy! Can talk for hours. Willing to work with you. Really knows what he is talking about and all you have to do is study before the exam and take notes on what he says. Easy B, very manageable A. Worth taking!

BORING! Easy class but Blacker loves to hear himself talk. Goes off on tangents about topics completely unrelated to law and ethics.

This class is very interesting and enjoyable to go to. He is hilarious and is always cracking jokes which keeps the class fun. Take notes on what he says and go to class because he will tell you exactly what you need to know. Try to understand the material and not just memorize it. The tests were difficult because you have to think logically.

He is a fantastic teacher. He deeply cares about law and makes you want to go to class. He is funny during lectures and throws in South Park jokes and is a funny dude. His tests were not bad just study the court cases and know them in and out and definitely go to class to get his explanation on them. Definitely easy to get a B with some work

Pretty Good Teacher. He is pretty funny and his class is really laid back. He does basically just sit there and lecture though. So it can get a bit boring. There are 3 exams and I would say they are average difficulty. Just study the cases and you will be fine. But overall if your taking this class you wont be disappointed if he is your teacher.

Pretty easy A. You do not need to do the massive amounts of reading. Just skim. Exam straightforward. He is pretty interesting to listen to. Does not spark discussions very well, but I prefer to listen anyway. Good class!

I liked this class. Dr. Blacker's easy to talk to or email if you have any problems or questions. Sometimes you do wonder where he's going when he starts on a digression, but class isn't boring.

best class I've had at UD. Shows fun of trying to solve cases and court decisions more like a puzzle than just a list of facts. Class in summer session was four hours long and it flew by - really! As someone studying Higher Ed, I've been frustrated at UD, but this class restored some faith.
