    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You'll really learn a lot, but this is not an easy class. Lots of reading, a very time-consuming 12 page research paper, and a tough midterm/final (lots of material to study). Renteln is brilliant though, so I think the work is worth it! (Though section is a pain)

    Course highlights:

    This course is focused much more on law than on politics or public policy. Be prepared to learn a lot about different court cases. You'll really learn a lot about your paper topic by the time you submit your paper.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class! Prof Renteln posts the slides but they are not exactly thorough - you need to go to class to fill in the gaps. Also, at the very least skim the readings. If you can keep a list of important cases/concepts/issues throughout the semester, studying for the final will be so much easier.

    You must do the reading! Otherwise, don't even think about passing the final exam. Also start the paper early!!!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It wasn't a very invigorating or interesting course in any way, each class just feels like more of the same boring talk about justices and the court. It doesn't ever feel different, dropping into the class in September versus November and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the structure of the courts in the United States and about different theories of judicial practice - originalism versus a living, evolving constitution.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't do it. It's not interesting at all. There's similar types of international relations courses and Public Policy courses that are so much better. Political Science has such dry courses.
