This class was tough.
Professor Sharafi was an excellent professor for the mandatory first-year class of Contracts I. She created worksheets for each assignment that pulled out the important and necessary information we were expected to take away. She explained the legal concepts in ways that were easy to understand. She used the "Socratic method" of cold-calling, but was never mean if a student was not prepared that day. Contracts can be a very difficult course for many students. Professor Sharafi provided tools that helped to make it less difficult.
There were three main things that I will take with me from this class. First, I will always read contracts now before I sign them, and I will better understand what I am reading. Second, I will always look for Arbitration Clauses in contracts, and will likely try to negotiate out of them. Third, I will look for Warranty Disclaimers whenever I am purchasing a good. I will fully discuss these disclaimers with the buyers, and ensure that I have a full understanding of the agreement before I sign.

Advice for students:
Read for each class and stay on top of the material. If you get behind in the reading, it can be really hard to catch up. Also, make sure you pay attention to the points that are highlighted by the professor in class. There is a lot of material, and so you have to know which material is not ultimately important for the final.
