Admin. law may suck, but it's an important and worthwhile class.

*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

I feel this way about Evidence (which should absolutely not be avoided, it just sucks.)

I'm in admin law. The only thing that sucked about it was that it was a 3 hour class held once a week in marathon sessions.

I actually think the material isn't all that bad. Some of the constitutional due process stuff is quite interesting.

Its just so dry and boring, I stoped reading after the second week or so, but still got an A in the class, randomness of law school grading

Although it may be a worth-while class depending on your practice, I was told to stay far away from Conflicts of Law.  Which I have, so I don't have any first hand advice. 

Article 2 & 2a is required at my school, but it sucks.
