Do you have Russell for Torts of Contracts? Russell is great, a great poriofessor, funny, endgaged, cares about his tudents, has a facebook page and will actually respond to posts you make. Great professor. Keep to his exam as he will tell you "Boring orginization gets all the points." he NOT joking. Headings, subheadings, underlineing, orginze by tpoic issue, P or D. Just organize the hell out of your exam. russle does not reallky cold call, but if you have a profesion germain to the case (like a Doctor, or a and insurance guy) he will call on you to ask you stuff about your sidurty.
Hardaway, LOL, hardaway, what can I say. The guy knows Civ Pro like the nobody's busniess. But he is a serious charcter. Hardaway will call your Dr. Lastname. He allways uses a microphone. First week or so of class he will passout a deck of playing cards, two people write thier name on a card. Each class he shuuffles the deck, pulls out a card or two and those pople are on call. You will then have to STAND (not shitting you) and he will ask you questions about the case. You have to reamin standing until he's done with the case, sometimes like 20 mins, sometimes 5. I got lucky and got like the shortest case in our entre casebook, LOL, but I still stood for 20 mins becuase he rambled on about stuff.
This sounds way more scary than it really is. The first guy who has to do it the first day, yea that sucks, but trust me everyone will have to do it and no one will pay attention to you while your doing it. Its seems worse than it really is. Also he has these after class sessions that are bascilly review, and abnouther hour of extra optional class. I did not go to them and did fine.
I don't know if he still does this, but you had to hand write his exams when I had him, only handwitten exam i had in law school. It was half essay and half bar exem level mutiple choice. HARD multiple choice where every answer could be right except for one tiny little detail.
Key to do well on his exam is this: hardway has "sayings' that he will repaeat over and over in class like "common nuclouse of operative fact" write those down. Then on the exam wriote them exactly as he says them underline and higlight it. I got my exams back from both Civ Pro I and II, and aALL the did was put a check mark next to each prahse I wrote of his that was underlined and highlighted. I could have said "blah, blah, balh, COMMON NUMCLOUS OF OPETIVE FACT balh balh blah and i bet i still would have gotten the points.
