This class was tough.
Well this is actually a required course for all 1Ls. I will say that I am really happy to have had this course with Vladeck. He was tough, but his style of teaching was a much easier transition into law school than my colleagues.
Definitely the drawings of the States (which were so on point yet so wrong at the same time). But substantively, his syllabus which gave an overview of what each class was going to be about was incredibly useful and helped me prepare for the final.

Advice for students:
Stay on top of your readings. Go to class. Pay attention. And read read read read read read the rules of civil procedure. But these are general rules all students should follow if they decide to go to law school. It's a professional setting.
