Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I highly recommend the course with Professor Carlino because she is a thorough attorney at law. It is one of the best instructors I have had in my 8 years in higher education. The way she has to introduce each topic and to open it to discussion is outstanding. The most interesting characteristic she possesses is that she is open to discussion, smiles at you while arguing, and accepts when you have the reason or, in the other way, works with you to make you understand the material. She does not rest until you get why you were wrong or why she considers her position should prevail.
In this course you will learn why you need an attorney. It is essential for anyone to hire an attorney at law when needed. He or she is as essential as a physician can be in a medical emergency. In the course a student will learn the basic rights every person has and how businesses are managed in the real world. The course teaches students to be aware of how deals are closed. It teaches students when a contract is valid or invalid or, one of the most interesting things, students learn the consequences of contracting with minors. As a matter of fact, unless some states and some exceptions, a minor can disaffirm a contract he or she just agreed to. For instance, if a minor goes to a store and buy a soda, he or she can return it and the vendor has the obligation to return the money. It is dangerous to contract with a minor in the United States. Like this peculiarity, in this course students will know how the legal system works and how to take advantage of it.

Advice for students:
Come prepare to class and read prior to class. This advice is for two reasons: first, professor will call on anyone to summarize one of the cases of the chapter being taught; and second, if a student does not read the material, he or she is losing a chance to learn beyond the readings and loses the change to ask the teacher about any doubt.
