LAW 525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

He is not easy, but if you work hard, go to class, know your text book and listen to every word that comes out of his mouth and write it down, you should do great. It's very important to absorb everything he says. I don't think he is the most helpful prof at Ryerson, as he is hard to talk to and expects students to understand, even if confused.

LAW533 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Interesting course. To do well, you have to attend lectures and take notes. He does try to make class more fun and interesting. My only gripe is that the exams are tricky, and the 'textbook'. its simply a compilation of articles that are ALL available online for free, which he strings together and profits. The requirement to participate sucks too.

LAW 525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Webb made the course very interesting and the textbook is also pretty interesting in itself so it wasn't a struggle to read the material. BE CAREFUL when writing his midterm and final because he likes to throw in a multitude of trick questions, i.e. what appears to be an easy question is actually not. Take good notes during class and you'll be fine

Great professor. Interesting course. Attend his lectures and listen - his tests should seem easy if you do. Wasn't a fan of the mandatory participation though. Otherwise, I enjoyed the class overall. :)

Professor Webb is a great prof who gives you all the tools you need to do well in class. Attend all the lectures and read through the material. Midterm and Final were much easier than the assignments. He responds to emails very quickly and is always looking to help!

Amazing professor, students who actually want to learn will love him, students who want an easy A will hate him. Very passionate and very professional. However I suggest you do ALL the readings and attend ALL the classes.

Amazing Law professor. If you're interested in learning a lot about law do take him. If you want an easy A, please take another law course so that seats are still available for those who truly want to learn.

You need to attend his classes because everything comes from his slides and hints in class. Best Law Professor @ Ryerson.

Law525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

An excellent, intelligent prof. He clearly explains even the most difficult concepts. He is more than willing to make time to help you out. His tests are very fair. If you read the material, attend lectures, and participate you will get at least an A-.

He is a good prof, he speaks clearly and helps you understand, but despite all that his tests seem easy when ur writing it but once u get ur mark back ur shocked. i studied so hard for all 2 midterms and final, and i thought i aced every one of them but that was not the case, make sure u know what he wants in his answers hes extremely particular.

Great proff for this course, he simplifies what the textbook talks about and makes you get the whole picture. Attendance is necessary because his lectures are extremely helpful and sometimes some info is not in the book. His exams are fair and based on lectures and book. Great proff!

LAW122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Really great prof. Love the fact that he uses Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and the Simpsons in his examples. Just wish he would get rid of that 5% participation mark, because people just don't want to ask questions in class.

LAW525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prof Webb is a very strict, but good professor. Lectures are clear, course material is challenging at times, and tests are fair. You MUST attend classes. The class didn't attend the last few weeks so he decided to put a significant amount of those week's material on our exam. Keep up and you'll do well.

LAW525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had him for Law 525 and 533. Really good prof. One of the bests for LAW. Definitely read the book if you expect to do well. Also attend every lecture because his tests are made up from lecture notes and ppt. PPT slides are extremely helpful. Not a fan of his mandatory participation but its an easy 5%.

Great prof - well organized, good speaker. You NEED to go to class and make notes on his lectures, his tests are based primarily off lecture material, so print the ppt!! If you do this, you will get 80+
