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

Amazing how many cheap shots are being taken at Prof. Reynolds here by people who never took his class, but only read and disapproved of his blog. Get a life. Prof. Reynolds is a deep thinker, and a great communicator. His class is highly recommended.

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

Unlike many raters, I actually had him for Constitutional Law and Nat'l Security Law. Very entertaining, informative and clear. Enjoyed those classes immensely. Mouth breathers who hate his Instapundit alter-ego have overrun his ratings here.378

Cons101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I've had classes with both Professor Reynolds, and with some clown adjunct at Univ of Chicago...Barry or something like that. Professor Reynolds knows his stuff about the Constitution. That Barry guy didn't know anything (thought the Second Amend protected the gov't right to export weapons to Mexico). Gotta love a professor that knows his stuff.

LAW101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

In his class, Professor Reynolds often offers hypotheticals involving the same characters, "Dr. Ellen Smythe" and "Rickey Kraus" and "Pamola Gellur." The problem is that the hypotheticals don't involve the law, but rather three-ways. He punctuates these stories with "heh" and "indeed" and refuses to come out from behind the podium at the end.

LAW101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Reynolds is hopeless. He is predictable. He is dreary. And he is prepared to pass judgement upon people using the flimsiest evidence (e.g. anonymous forum comments). Finally, his tendency to end lectures with the word "Heh" is extremely irritating.

LAW957 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

More interested in self-promotion than the welfare of his students. Unsure how he squares libertarian tendencies with living off the public dime. Definitely lets political views affect information he's supposed to be teaching.

Reynolds is the best teacher here hands down. Really funny and the most intelligent person I know to boot. I really feel honored to be in his classes due to his accomplishments and credentials.

Haha... it's true. His eyes are mezmerizing! Great guy, super intelligent and funny. Just this one warning...if you take his class and you're a girl, you will probably spend the rest of law school pining for him.

Great to listen to, look at and you actually learn something to carry on with you...A jewel among the otherwise barren landscape of other average or below average law professors.

Along with Neil Cohen, Professor Reynolds was one of my two favorite teachers in law school. He encourages debate and chooses topics that hold students' interests.
