    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very well-taught! Learning about different cases was very interesting and relevant to our society today. The fact that I could apply lessons from this class to my everyday life made it much more interesting and enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, we went over monumental cases in history that led to the laws we have today. Not only did we study the case facts, but we practiced different forms of judicial interpretation and learned to analyze judges' motives. There was no homework for this course; however, it helps to read beforehand so you can be active in class discussions.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes throughout the course and read the textbook. The textbook is written by Professor Sellgren herself so it has all you need to know to succeed in this course.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a very interesting course, and can potentially help you in the future if you ever encounter issues in law. However, it's not one can expects it to be. The teaching style is different, but it's a great class if you decide to major either in criminology or poli sci.

    Course highlights:

    Overall, the biggest thing I learned is that the law is not a very reliable source because it's left into interpretation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to detail, even what appears to be small can actually have a big significance.
