Highlights from the Syllabus: Participation Class attendance is required. What does this mean? ◦ Arrival before class begins and departure after class ends. ◦ Each student signs in for only him- or herself on the attendance sheet, which will be distributed at the commencement of each class. ◦ Being prepared and attentive. ◦ For full participation credit, students are expected to contribute to every class discussion using legal and policy support for their views, not merely personal opinion as to current events. Two passes total for the above are allowed by placing a note on the professor’s lectern prior to the beginning of class. Each absence is a pass. ◦ Can’t make it to class?
