Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I took the course because it is required that you take an ISS course and 225 was the only one available when I scheduled my classes. I would recommend it because it is not as difficult as other people make it out to be and the assignments are fairly easy to complete. The topics covered are pretty interesting and the cases that we read are relevant because they are current/ongoing Supreme Court cases.
I learned a lot more about the US Supreme Court and how to read oral arguments, majority opinions, and dissents. One of the highlights is that there is no final exam but the midterm is difficult unless you really prepare for it.

Advice for students:
Make sure you start your case briefs well in advance because if you have any questions, you can simply email the professor and she will help you out. She will read your rough draft and let you know what changes need to be made to receive a good score.
