Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is a great combination of history and politics. Learning about significant trials that have occurred throughout the years is not only interesting but also very eye opening. This course does not require memorizing dates and names but focuses more on the significance of a trial and why it is so important.
In this course students get to learn about how governments have developed over the years and how laws shape our every day lives. Years ago, in Europe specifically, the church was seen as what we would call Government today. It is interesting to see how people have swayed away from that. Today the government makes our laws, not the church. These laws have changed throughout the years. Learning about trials from the 1600's to the present day, allows for students to see that.

Advice for students:
Attend class and take good notes on the trials. When taking notes, don't focus too much on dates and people but the trial itself and the significance of it.
