See for yourself what they have to say, thanks to these comments from recent course evaluation surveys.
Professor Toni Massaro is brilliant, but even more, she shares that brilliance in a way that makes students feel heard. It's a perfect recipe for learning.
I loved Professor Ellen Bublick’s kind and compassionate nature. Her open-door policy is one of the most generous I have seen, and it is very clear that she deeply cares about her students’ success and well-being.
Professor Andrew Coan genuinely cares about his students. He is extremely passionate about the topics, which in turn helps his students become passionate about it as well. He is always willing to go above and beyond to meet with students if they are struggling with something and is extremely patient. Professor Coan is by far the best professor I have ever had.
Professor Susan Salmon is very clearly interested in and passionate about her subject. She made learning about legal writing more enjoyable than it normally would be. I also appreciate her focus on mindfulness and meditation around the time of oral arguments.
