All Ratings and Reviews for Patrick Goodman
Since Lawyering Skills professor assignments are not optional, if you're in his class, you're there for good.
Professor Goodman is a good guy, and he teaches reasonably well. Some of the topics are overly formulaic, but a lot of the skills taught are actually used in real lawyering.
There are only 3 graded assignments in the class. Try very hard on the papers because the final is fairly standard from year to year, so there is not much variation in the grades. The class is curved, which means only about 4 people can get As.
When he tells you to frontload your efforts, listen, because it does actually make things easier in the long run. And try not to overthink the papers, because that can hurt your grade.
