Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Dr. Collins is one of the best professors I have ever had! He takes great pride and care in teaching and making sure students get the most to take with them out of his courses. This was a great class.
This class was fantastic. Not only does Professor Collins make things great and interesting but we got to take a part an actual case (from the actual Mock Trials Association) and do all different parts of case law such as (direct examinations, cross examinations, evidence, etc.), we also wrote a case brief on the case itself. It really gave you a feel and preparation if you are planning on going to law school and being a lawyer. It was my personal first real insight to what it is actually like to take on a real case at trial.

Advice for students:
Prepare to do the work and study, though Dr. Collins is awesome, you have to do the work and actually learn. Which if you are in it for reasons like myself, you will want to and enjoy it like I did. Make sure to devote enough time to the case study weekly you have to be familiar with every aspect of the case. You do get to decide which side you want to represent (prosecution or defense) so that helps narrow a lot of it down but you still need to be familiar with all aspects.
