What to memorize 100 pages of notes? Then take this class. This class is extremely extremely difficult. Johns gives you no guidance at all for the midterm or final which means a lot considering it is A TON of information. She doesn't post slides and her book does not cover lecture so if you miss clas your screwed. To do well in this class you have to go to every single lecture and type with the speed of god because she speaks fast. The TAs are important for clarity but they can't help you for the exams because they don't know what's on it. There are weekly quizzes in section that are difficult sometimes so you have to read. If I could do it over I would avoid this class. International law is really interesting but it's not worth the workload. You will spend the majority of your time on this class. The midterm was pretty straightforward but The final was impossible. She tests you on random terms from her book that she never covered or parts of lecture that were super minuscule. Would not recommend this class unless you have ample time or can read minds.

He is a horrible professor and absolutely does not know how to teach. He does not care about the students, and grades strictly off the rubric. The midterm and final are take home, and based exactly from the notes. Reading is not required at all, if you will use any material from the reading it will only lower your grade. He is an arrogant, self centered, selfish individual. His lectures are barely understandable and you do not learn anything in his class. I would suggest not to take any of his classes.
