This class was tough.
Although this class was challenging, Professor Sorovigas was one of the best professors I have ever had at State! He was a former lawyer so his stories of first-hand experiences were very interesting and helpful and I found myself not only paying attention during the whole lecture but also wanting to read about the course material.
This course did an excellent job applying what was discussed in class and read from the text to real life situations. The homework and exams demanded you to think outside the box and approach an issue from all sides. Some subject matter discussed during the course was product and service liability, property law, the law of contracts and sales, agency law, different forms of business associations, court systems, the law of human resources, environmental law, and consumer protections.

Advice for students:
My biggest advice is to read the chapters and take thorough notes of the chapters before each class. Professor Sorovigas lectures off of a powerpoint presentation each class but goes through it quickly so if you do not come prepared you will not be able to get all of the information in class. Additionally, my reading beforehand you can focus more on his stories and take his lectures as supplementary information to the notes you have already taken. When it comes to the exams, they are difficult but do not ask more of you than necessary. As long as you read the chapters, come to class and pay attention, try on the homework, and study for the exams, you can expect to get a 3.5 or 4.0.
