CLASSES/PROFS
« on: July 21, 2005, 04:24:47 PM »
If we all post schedules, maybe we can figure out who's in which section...esp. when it comes to the small ones for legal writing...

Here is my schedule:  SECTION A1

Contracts - Prof. Harry Flechtner (Section 1020)
Legal Process - Prof. NATHENSON (Section 1020) 
**EDIT** The peoplesoft data is wrong... instead of Prof. Brake, I have Prof. Nathenson for Legal Process**
Torts - Prof. Lawerence Frolik (Section 1030)
Crim. Law - Prof. John Burkoff (Section 1015)
Legal Writing - Prof. James Flannery (Section 1035)

YOU CAN SEE HOW PROFESSORS ARE RATED BY PAST STUDENTS (not all, but some are on there) AT WWW.RATEMYPROFESSORS.COM
I will be a Nittany Lion turned Pitt Panther for 1L 2005.

I'll see you in Contracts, Legal Process, and Torts!  I wonder if there are any "professor kingsfield" types at Pitt.

Laura and Sita, it looks like you have another friend...

Contracts - Prof. Harry Flechtner (Section 1020)
Legal Process - Prof. Deborah Brake (Section 1020)
Torts - Prof. Lawerence Frolik (Section 1030)
Crim. Law - Prof. John Burkoff (Section 1015)
Legal Writing - Prof. James Flannery (Section 1035)

so the three of us are all in the same section so we should be spending a lot of time together, we should set up a group or list with people in our section so we can get comfortable before or during orientation

I'll be a 3L at Pitt this year.  [I'm busy working right now and needed a break, so I checked this board.]

I've had most of the professors listed thus far for at least one class.  None are "Professor Kingsfield" types, but they are a bit rougher on the 1Ls than on the 2Ls and 3Ls (nothing too bad though).  You'll receive mixed commentary from 2Ls and 3Ls about most of them.

Here's my commentary for a couple of the professors listed that I've had:

I would say that Burkoff is one of the most popular professors at the school.  I took his ethics class, and I didn't look up at the clock once the entire semester.  He's extremely engaging.  I have heard good things about him from friends who had him for criminal law.

I had Flannery for legal writing.  The workload is heavier (e.g. 2 open memos instead of one) and the subject matter more challenging (e.g. we wrote a memo assessing CERCLA liability while another section wrote something pertaining to dog bites) for his legal writing class than for the others, but most students who had him seemed to be thankful for it in the end.  I really liked his class, but be prepared to be busy and start working on the large assignments once you receive them.  Flannery is also extremely accessible and very helpful - particularly if you come into his office showing that you've put a lot of thought into a problem and have focused questions.
