LAW 731 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Althouse has a bad reputation because of her semi-political blog. She is known as one of UW-Madison's few out-spoken conservatives. However, she is brillant and fair with her tests. Be warned though, she expects each student to be prepared for each class. Moreover, she asks the most confusing questions. Read slowly and listen actively!

LAW731 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

If you can, avoid her! She's seriously awful! No one at the law school has any idea how she attained the rank of Professor. Drop her! Now! (Or don't register for her if you haven't already)!

Con101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her final Con Law exam did not test the material of the course and there was no semblance of fairness in the way she graded. Althouse gave no comments or feedback when questioned about the exam/grade. She is a compeltely unfair and ineffective prof, not to mention a Scalia nut. Bleh. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

If you are looking for a clear understanding of Con Law, STAY AWAY from Althouse. A blithering, incomprehensible idiot.

LAW200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is like an emu. She writes and talks like a flightless bird who does not understand copyright laws. Also, Gloria Steinem called and she said she wants her to get a self-esteem already! She is a mockery to the paper her law degree was written on.

law802 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Writes like she blogs -- all over the place. Impossible to follow. Get a good outline and some study aids, tho, and you'll do OK.
