He is hard to understand at 1st, once u get used to him u will be fine. He's laid back and will help you. H's super SMART! Work load isn't big, just readings mostly and handing things in throughout the semester. This is for POL 409 and 450. Just ask for help and he will help you with info or where to get it, or help with paper topics.

Really great professor. Always attempts to help students. The students can have more flexibility in this course. Just make sure that you read the assigned chapters from the class textbook. Overall,experienced, intellectual and cooperative mentor.

He is VERY difficult to understand so you NEED to pay attention! Doesn't take attendance, he just remembers faces.he gives a midterm, final and a 10 page paper on any topic you choose and is willing to help you with it if needed.he gives a review for midterm and chooses some things from midterm so study it all. No HOMEWORK, just read chapters

His teaching method is weird to say the least. Its all lecture so it drags and can be boring. His exams are a mixture of whats in the text and what he talks about. Don't be surprise though that on the exam you answer a question correctly according to the book & he marks you wrong because he was looking for HIS answer he spoke about.

Excellent professor. He is the professor to take to understand how the human rights are applicable in the world. Take him. You get a midterm, final and a term paper.

Prof. Fomerand is a walking encyclopedia on international law, international human rights law and the United Nations. John Jay is extremely lucky to have an individual of this caliber teaching at its college. Lectures are engaging and informative. As with all classes, being prepared for class is a prerequisite to academic success (i.e., read). A+

I had for international relations and law. he is very knowledgable, he has actual experience in the international world. he can answer your questions thourougly. the only downfall is his grading, he is a very unfair grader. i got an A on the midterm and final, he gave me a C+ in his class. there is no avoiding him, if your an ICJ major.

he's a nice, lenient professor, has good sense of humor. he gets irritated if you ask questions and expects you to figure out on your own. one minute he's giddy, the next he's all grumpy..he might have bipolar disorder. he doesn't take attendance and doesn't give notes..just lectures. there's a midterm, 1 paper & final. overall, he's OK, sometimes!

First I must start by saying I tried hard to give the guy a chance but he failed me. First off his a bore and could care less if you comprehend what his trying to teach. And your grade is based not on your work but on whether he likes you or not if you want an A you better be ready to sit in the front and SUCK UP he loves that. He has his favorites

Arguably, Dr. Fomerand is one of the finest Professors at John Jay. His method of teaching is flawless; intellectual lectures with a touch of humor. I could sit and listen to him for hours?even days. It was an honor, and the effort was well worth it.

UNPROFESSIONAL grades u strictly on how much u participate/know about what your talking about. Fail his tests but participate and make good points he will give u an A. Sometimes he gets high i think and acts very moody, will focus on one person for 20 minutes making jokes at their expense. TAKE FOR GOOD GRADE but he really shouldn't be teaching.
