Hey Matthies and somany-
I have these profs:
Scales, Taylor, Rogers, & Cai
You guys had these professors before? You said that Taylor was tough, but that's alright with me! What about the others?
Again, I suggest that you go to the above referenced cite & email Laurie for the password. It'll give you prof. evals from students. Not that it matters much because you can't change your professors but it's not to have people's prospective on professors so you know what to expect.
Scales - From what I hear she is awesome. I've been to a talk she had at the law school and she is so funny, smart, and seems like a wonderful person. She leans left & is a huge feminist & gay/lesbian supporter (is that policitally incorrect?). Last year people had her for civ pro & torts. . .I've heard more good things about her than bad. I think people just really enjoy her class because she's so easy going & humorous.
Taylor - Again, VERY VERY tough. . .if you don't have time to read for any other class, read for hers. Takes time to get used to her but very smart and engaging professor. Has somewhat of a dry, sarcastic humor.
Rogers - don't know anything about him/her. The LP profs seem to change pretty frequently. . .
Cai - I had her for property & I liked her a lot. She is smart and quick witted. Some people take offense to her humor but she really means no harm. Also, she has a strange accent. . .if you figure it out, lemme know. . .it's a mix between British & something else. Known as the best dressed prof. in law school, dating one of the prof (go to her office hours & you'll find out immediately), and speaks a gazillion languages. She is extremely accomplished at her age (early 30's). Worked at Skadden & Mofo before teaching at DU. Two books to buy: Gilbert's Property & Edward's Future interest. She'll recommend those (and others) to you but you really should purchase them. Get them at the SBA bookstore. Alphabetical on-call system, online quizes (not graded but must participate), and a final worth 90%. Her final was TOUGH. She gives you sample exams and you should take every single one. Also, if you need advising or want career counseling, go see her. She's wonderful. Oh, and her name is pronounced like the tea. . .Chai. . .something about immigration messing up the spelling or something. LOL
Anything interesting happen in America lately?
