"Tough Grader" "Get ready to read" "Gives good feedback"

I had Turner for Honors BSL, for regular she is very easy but I do not recommend the honors. We had to write a much more difficult research paper. I ended up with an A but had to spend maybe 30 hours on the paper and at least an additional 20 studying for the final.

"Skip class? You won't pass."

Took BSL212 Honors. This is a class you really have to show up for to understand what is going on, but I didn't read the textbook every week unless I had quizzes coming up. She is very helpful, and if you're confused by something and go see her she will explain it to you well. She knows what she's talking about and is so awesome! The best professor

Dr. Turner is both an amazing professor and a great person. Make sure you read the cases before class, but otherwise her notes are perfect, covering the material in a way that is both thorough and relatable. Truly one of the best professors at UM and I really hope that I will be able to take any other classes she teaches

Best professor at UM and an incredibly nice person. Material is interesting and somewhat dense but if you read the cases your fine. Her 4.2 easy rating is high only because she teaches so well

Great teacher. Very easy to learn from. Grades very fairly. Class is based on quizzes and then a cumulative final that all of the sections no matter what teacher teach. She makes the material easy to understand. BSL department has great teachers, take Turner if possible!

Best teacher I've had at UM. Genuinely cares about students and makes sure students are immersed in the subjects. Brings in real life examples and applications. Gives great life long legal advice as well. Surprised she doesn't work full time as a lawyer because she's that good. If you try very hard, you will do well.

BSL212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Possibly the best professor I have ever had during my two years at UM. Such an amazing person and an even better professor. Attendance is mandatory but her class is actually interesting so you don't dread having to go. 8 quizzes throughout the semester that cover only what she lectures on... Book is only used to read cases

The class isn't a cakewalk and you need to attend, but she lays out the material in an easy-to-understand way and tells you what to study for the tests. If you have to take this class, take her!

Amazing professor. Explains everything so clearly and provides great examples. She is not a tough grader, but will be picky with details, so it's hard to get a perfect score. Really wants you to do well and get a good grade. Highly recommended!!

Great teacher! Interesting to listen to, always nice, always understanding. I have wondered why she doesn't go off and make tons of money as a full time lawyer, but I guess it's because she loves to teach. There are 8 quizzes a semester, so about one every 1.5 weeks or so. Very reasonable grader, but pretty much impossible to get a perfect grade.

Tough material, but she is the best professor you will ever have. You'll often wonder why she's teaching your class instead of making millions as a brilliant lawyer

Fantastic teacher. Her examples are clear and simple. The information was actually quite interesting, and it helped that she explained everything very well. It's hard to get an A+ without flat out memorizing everything, but it's very easy to get A- or a B+.

Excellent teacher, extremely nice. She can break anything complicated down into something very simple. She's very open minded about grading on quizzes and exams, and she's extremely helpful with them as well as the paper. She's also more interesting in lectures than most for the subject.
