Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The issues pertaining to gender issues are becoming increasingly important, especially within a legal lens. This class, through case law, introduces the history of gender issues within the legal world. The cases that are assigned highlight contentious debate of constitutional law and state statutes pertaining to gender and sexuality.
The highlights were the cases. Each case was extremely interesting and allowed me to look at a problem through different perspectives. Additionally, the debates and discussions in class were thoughtful and helpful in understanding the cases. I learned the basic language of law, which is found within the legal decisions of Supreme Court cases. I also learned how to write case briefs, which were efficient when it came to studying for tests.

Advice for students:
To understand discussions and debate, you have to read the cases. Even though some are long and difficult to understand, it is important that you attempt to read them so you can participate in the discussion. One should be prepared for class through writing the case briefs and having a basic understanding as to why the case is being argued.
