I had Professor Dubner for both Contracts and Secured Transactions while we were at Cooley. He does not suffer fools lightly and he is a very good teacher.

I had Professor Dubner for Bills and Notes (Commercial Paper) at Stetson University in Spring Semester 1980. Excellent teacher, helpful to those who are prepared and who ask for help, great motivator.

Commercial Law Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dubner is a very good professor. He expects you to be ready for class, but if you are not ready and you tell him ahead (even via email), he will not call on you. He will spend as much time with you as you need. He does not read from the book, but he does over almost ALL the exercises in the book. He is also a fair grader, and for that, I recomm

Commercial Law Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He teaches by doing examples, but he does expect you to be prepared for class. However, if you tell him that you aren't prepared, he'll let you stay in class. He also lets you email him with which case you want to brief, so no fear of the socratic method.

Contracts II Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Seems much more helpful this semester than last.. I guess he figures maybe we're not so dumb since some of us did well in his class. :-)

Run. Run far, far away. He reads out of the book. I mean come-on stop being so GD lazy and teach. The most helpful thing in that class is movie review. I swear it's like I'm being taught by Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Pick a personality and stick with it for cryin-out-loud!

Very hard to follow, and he will throw you out of class if he thinks you're unprepared.

Dubner teaches the course that most of us just dont handle well, contracts. Cases are old, the language is difficult & I think it has little to do with Dubner. He encourages students to come see him if we need help; the fact is the class requires alot of preparation and alot of us, myself included are slacking. The good news is, the end is near.
