I enjoyed this course but you really need to have some legal background to get the most out of it. The assignments were worth the time they took and I learned a lot trying to grade my fellow students.
A challenging and insightful course. The only downside is that it had to end. Excellent professor with engaging videos, in-depth analysis, peer graded assignments and just a good overall course.

An essential resource for a student interested in the field of law in the US. It shall introduce you to the various conceptual legal dichotomies and relevant jurisprudence and prepare you with an excellent head start to a formal education in law school.

This course is really nice for anyone who want to start law school. But it is completely in US context. Though the concepts remain the same across common law countries, Indian students and non Us students probably find it difficult to do the course.

The course was particularly helpful introducing me to legal terms and concepts. There were times I felt that this could have been explained better, but overall would recommend. I enjoyed the quizzes and assignments.

The course was really hard at first but then I got used to the difficulty of the course. My only negative opinion about the course is that it was suddenly removed while there was support for Turkish subtitles.
I found the range of topics extremely helpful and relevant. There were some minor technical problems with regards to grading, but overall, I really enjoyed the learning experience from this particular course.

Very informative. Not for a beginner. The readings took much longer than estimated in the syllabus. Peer grading can be challenging. Much heavier workload than I expected but well worth it.

Great course. Very useful skills and helpful lessons. Definitely a lot of work and the lectures aren't incredibly intuitive, but useful if you are preparing for your first year of law school.

it is great for citizens students, However, the speaker uses such a little hard vocabulary to understand for international students as me. I really enjoy in this course. Thanks.

Very challenging but there are many lessons to be learned. Law is a challenging and complex field, and prof. Ayres comes at it with good analogies and helpful advice
By Jan P•
The course was beneficial to me and I learned a lot of new things. I took one star because of the assessment of students who are too poorly evaluated.
By Susan A C•
Excellent course that covers a *lot* of material. The amount of reading far exceeded the estimated reading time of 10 minutes in almost all cases.
By Evan C•
Fantastic course, but an estimated 10 minutes to read one or two law review articles is really unrealistic.
By Do H K•
Since this course handles difficult context, it may be little bit hard to one who studies law first time.
By Sander S•
Simple and well explained, but perhaps more information should be put on slides behind the lecturer.
By Tamara M•
Excellent and fun class to understand Common-Law concepts and be prepared to with US Law cases.
By Aaron M•
A broad overview, well communicated though, and the readings are useful for future reference.

Ótimo curso para estudantes de direito, faltou apenas legenda em português para facilitar.
By C S V K•
It was a very insightful course but lacked relevance to the common law system
By Augusta O•
