Winter 2019 - Professor Ribet is a very engaging lecturer with a soothing voice! The class is 3 hours long once a week. She is very passionate and knowledgeable about mental disability law. The class grade consists of 2 take-home exams (one midterm, one final), participation in class, a book review, and a policy paper. The exam questions are very fair and broad. The weekly readings are always posted on CCLE (so no need to buy a textbook), and they're normally either a court case or an article. The material is very applicable to disability studies, law, etc. and covers a wide range of intersectional topics (reproductive autonomy, gender, class, race, etc.). I highly recommend this course and this professor!
