This was a terrific class. It was filled with information which is useful but was based on theories and jurisprudence. Great class with a refined and highly intellectual professor. I recommend it to all who are interested in criminal justice, political science and law school

I came to class with little knowledge of the subject and even less interest. But Dr Lorenzini set up very challenging yet interesting readings and always made critical and helpful comments about our writings. He made me love the class. He is simply a great teacher, knows his stuff backwords and forwards, and is extremely helpful.

I had a wonderful experience in Lorenzini"s class. His command of the subject was was impressive and this was only outdone by his teaching skills. I recommend him to all law majors.

Really like his tyle. He's demanding but always fair. He's willing to hear different viewpoints but draws the line with slackers. So take him only if you're ready to read lots, write lots and are ready to participate in class.

Did very well on our tests and classwork too. Professor is tough but fair and he gives great reviews for exams. But he does expect very much from the take home essay tests.

For me this was a hard class but the professor made it worth the effort. He is smart, articulate, knows his subject real well and seems to care about students. He is very attractive too. Believe me, take Lorenzini if you can cause he's worth it!

Lorenzini is a great professor. He is a practicing lawyer so knows her stuff very well. He kept class interesting with jokes and real world examples, and is very easy going about homework and papers. Classes are well explanatory and gives take final and paper is well diverse. I would definitely recommend him and wish he taught another class.

Taking Lorenzini is the best thing I did all year. He made the subject interesting even though I thought I'd be bored to tears. He's real sharp and always seeks to help if you ask.

Great Guy! Frequently mentions he's from Italy. Likes bringing conclusions to his legal practice relevant to course material. He knows his stuff, I always had an interest in Criminal Justice, after taking his class I am definitely considering on going to Law School. His knowledge and enthusiasm made me want to learn more about the topic.

Dr. Lorenzini & Vince Jones are both the best instructors and attorny's. Dr. Lorenzini is very knowledegable about comparative studies and he's very funny. When he speaks it's feels like your listening to a comedian.
