CJL 2000 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I'm taking this class right now, and it's by far the hardest class, especially for a 2000 class at UF. Don't get me wrong, even with studying and watching the lectures, the class is pretty difficult because of the way he grades his assignments and the way he makes his exams.

CCJ 3024 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took this class summer A and it was very straightforward. If you read the chapters (they take a while) and watch the lectures while taking good notes, an A is easy to attain. Also, take your time on the papers he assigns, they are quite easy if you follow the guidelines. And of course, do the extra credit. HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING ONLINE (easier)

He was great! Don't get me wrong, the exams are hard. But if you take your assignments seriously, study for exams & go to class everyday you should definitely get a B. He was funny but stayed on topic and made the material so much easier to understand. I completely recommend this class if you are willing to put in effort. He is very knowledgeable.

the class is very difficult because the tests are extremely hard. I went to class and read the book and made my own study guides and yet the tests were very confusing and i did not do well in the class. he cannot stay on topic and it is very boring

I took him for CJL2000 and even though the tests were kinda hard- if you go to class every day you'll be able to get a B. He's extremely helpful outside of class!

He was a great teacher, but with a double period the class can run pretty long and boring. Nevertheless, if you stay awake in class and read the materials, you should be able to score well on the tests as they are only multiple choice. Note: He doesn't allow laptop use which can be annoying.

This class is a bit difficult just because you can't take notes on your laptop. Otherwise, he is an extremely entertaining and helpful teacher. He knows his stuff and his lectures can be pretty great. His class can get boring, but I think that is just because the material itself can be boring. Study your notes for his tests and you will do fine.

He rarely discusses topics that are relevant to what he tests you on, but if you read the book it's not so bad. He doesn't allow laptops in his class!!! So you have to write down your notes on paper. He gets kinda monotone and boring.

Go to class with a laptop, because he talks very fast and gets very passionate about the subject. You'll need to type it all. It is obvious he knows his stuff and is great with questions. The book is also extremely helpful. The class took work, but I learned a ton of stuff that I use each and every day, and he tought it pretty well. Recommended

Probably the hardest class, I have ever taken. If you are not prelaw do not take it!! For the national Championship game, which we had two of them, he left early, while we had to be taught by the TA!!

I left this class with mixed feelings. I LOVED the class at the start of the semester, but as the class progressed, I began to hate it more and more. Lanza-Kaduce is a really good teacher, but the topic matter was just a bore, in my opinion. And I did NOT like the TA's.

This class is hard because the tests don't just come from his lectures or from the book...you really have to think about the stuff! Its like being in a first year law class, so its good for that experience but not good if you just want an intro class for criminology.

I took Law & Society as my first crim class and would NOT reccomend this! You should really take another class before this to have a better background in the subject because prior knowledge is reallyyyy helpful!

His classes are difficult...you HAVE to study. I do recommend taking at least one of his courses, you will learn alot. He is great prep for law school. Don't be afraid to ask him for extra help, that makes it easier.

Very challenging class. You HAVE to study. I would recommend taking this class with him if you really want to learn the 1st through 14th ammendments! He knows his stuff. Good prep for law classes. Also has real world applications. Grades come hard.
