Although I am not going to Chapman this fall and it seems a bit off-topic to the OP, I just spent a week long seminar through the Institute of Humane Studies. One of the professors is Tom Bell, a professor at Chapman. I know he teaches Contracts, so for those of you that might have him on your schedule you'll really enjoy him. Whatever was posted on ratemyprofessors.com is probably very accurate. If not, I know he's an IP person so he's also a guy to make contact with there. Furthermore, def. a SoCal kind of person. So yeah, just a preview of what to expect from one prof.
