    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is excellent preparation for law school. This course challenges you to read, and pay close attention to detail.

    Course highlights:

    I learned cases from the Supreme Court such as Regents v. Bakke. I also learned terminology when learning the essential points of a case such as standing, mootness, and ripeness. I learned how to read and take notes on cases efficiently so I could learn the essential facts of the case. Most importantly, I learned to never give up. I continued to go to my professor's office hours to receive extra help. Although, I scored low on the exams, I continued to study and work hard until I earned a B in the course. I am now a legal assistant, and the professor wrote my letter of reference to Columbia University, where I am attending in the fall.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study at least three to four times a week. Form a study group of two to three people. Be committed to succeeding in the course, and analyze the cases together. Go to the professor's office hours for help and questions. Take advantage of the extra credit so that the overall score goes up to earning a good grade in the class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is recommended because it is required! Most challenging class in Spelman's Political Science Department! I have graduated and went on to law school. ABA law schools require law students to take Con Law. Thank God for this class! Though it was not exactly like a law course, Dean P grades like it is a law course.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing about this course is Dean P's strict NO CHEATING policy. I also loved studying the cases that surround the civil rights era as well as the reconstruction era. I learned a lot about our country's history and the progression of America's legal system.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to put time into this course. Do not come unprepared to class. Class participation is essential to your understanding of the material. I recommend getting any law school constitutional law practice multiple choice supplements in order to to fairly well in this class. FINZ, Q & A and Finals are some good brands. Save all your notes if you plan on going to law school!
