Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Constitutional Law was a course I found integral to life within the United States. Not only did it apply to my Legal Studies degree and give me a leg up for when I take it next year in law school, but it outlined my rights as a citizen and gave me a better understanding of my place within the country as a citizen. This course should be a requirement for all high school students before graduating. It is that important.
I learned my constitutional rights and the exceptions to those rights, This course was a condensed version of the traditional year-long Constitutional Law course in law school.

Advice for students:
If you are considering this course, be prepared to put in a lot of time. In order to fulfill the requirements and learn what you should, this class will require more time than most other undergrad classes. I am a bit of an overachiever and I tend to write well past the minimum requirement, but it was not unusual for me to write 10+ pages a week on the writing assignments. Professor Hopkins was a phenomenal professor and he has the real-life experience to teach this course. This course was in my top three.
