"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Mark is very intimidating at first but I got the honor to get to know him during the semester. He's a very intelligent man and really cares about his students. He definitely isn't going to do the work for you, but he helps you as much as he can. He's a tough grader, but if you're interested in politicslaw, take courses from him. It's worth it!

"Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Although Jennings has a tough BLAW class, I recommend it if you are interested in law. Extremely intimidating at first but very helpful when he calls on students. The test is based solely on his lecture, doesn't have slides so you must take good notes but he clearly defines whats on the test. Very tough grader on the one paper.

Pol 1800 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Trade was originally a lawyer, so I thought Mock Trial would have been interesting. Expects you to think like a lawyer right away with no prior knowledge and is very harsh to students who are struggling. Horrible curves makes my GPA drop like crazy and not very helpful to raise a grade. He even told me to drop due to missing one class from illness

BLAW10001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

By trade, he is a lawyer, not academic. Therefore, his class is heavily based upon learning the relevant laws (where most profs stop) and APPLYING them. One tip: class participation (no matter how stupid your comment) can boost your grade by nearly 10%.

3015 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great class learned a lot however, terrible professor. Sets you up for failure. If you miss one class lecture, you will automatically not get an A. No test questions come from text, just case studies book and lecture. Class is based on a curve, however an 80% is a C+ in his book. I now know why he was kicked out of the Business School.

POL1011 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Attendance isn't necessarily mandatory, but if you don't attend class, you're going to have a really hard time getting above a C. Go to class, and take lots of notes because nearly all the questions on the test are from his lecture. Very knowledgeable about the subject but his tests are difficult because some of the questions are opinion based.

POL1011 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

He can be pretty rude at times and shows no mercy involving extra credit options. I passed this class solely by reading the book & taking in-depth notes because his lectures were all over the place & too hard to follow.

POLL 1011 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's a left wing professor who judges you on your political beliefs. His tests are difficult and there's usually more than one right answer for each question. If you take this class highly suggest reading the chapters before class, not during the time he's talking about them. I wouldn't recommend this professor to anyone. Just my opinion.

BLAW 2001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a really nice guy. Although attendance is not mandatory, he does use class participation as a grade component. He will call on you weekly and if your not there he takes note of it. The subject was kind of hard. I would still recommend him.

He contradicted himself seriously like 5 times when I went during his office hours. He's a nice guy and knows his stuff but I dont think he's meant to be a prof. Didn't even know what peer reviewing was! Ughhh He made me so frustrated.

Good Professor, test material comes directly from the textbook and lectures. You need to attend class to do well. Challenging exams but he is very clear and wants you to do well.

You will be challenged, but overall he is very clear with his expectations. Deviations will result in lower grades. Tests come almost directly from lecture, so attendance is important.

POL3015 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The way Jennings taught State and Local Government/Politics made it a more difficult 3xxx level class. Many things on the tests come from the lectures so take thorough notes, even on something that seems obscure! The tests (curved) are long and somewhat difficult.The term paper is quite easy as long as you stay on task and follow his paper "rules"

Tests are sorta difficult. Also had to write a paper (he is a picky when it comes to grammar) His lectures are pretty interesting and he encourages questions.

BLAW2001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Take BLAW2001 from a different professor, he is ridiculous. You get an extra credit point for every irrelevant question you ask, even if it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the material, wasting a ton of time. I disagree with some people in saying that the tests are super easy if you go to class...I didn't touch the book.

Fantastic Teacher! This was by far the most interesting class I took this year. Tests were take home essay (stickler for good writing skills) and the paper/presentation was so much fun! Attendance isn't mandatory but he makes class so entertaining you cant help but want to go! Must do the readings. Would definitely recommend to everyone!!!!!!

Very interesting class. Grade consists of papers that are take home. Very picky when it comes to grammatical errors. Lectures based off class discussion, so dont expect to go and get notes off a power point. Overall, I would suggest this class and professor to anyone

Awesome teacher, you learn a lot. If you go to class and take notes you will do super good on the tests because the tests are literally his lectures. His examples are very helpful, make sure to write them all down because most of them show up on the tests. Awesome teacher and very interesting class. Enjoyed it a lot.

He is ok. He is sorta monotoned which gets annoying and he thinks he's funny. You NEED to participate and ask questions. Not a difficult class.
