Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class covered a wide range of topics and theories applicable to psychology, memory and law. It provides an interesting look at some of the problems in the legal system, brought on by the lack of knowledge judges/lawyers/the public have on the workings of the mind and memory.
The biggest takeaway from this class was the fallibility of memory and how the legal system is behind the times in regard to research on effective and reliable techniques regarding testimony and memory.

Advice for students:
This class requires a large group project at the end of the semester, so if you don't like group projects, don't take this class. Attend class, because about half the prelim questions come from lecture notes.
