2. Oil and Gas Contracts (Lowe)
I took this class and it was insufferable. I could've literally never attended class and I would've made the exact same grade that I ended up with. The last 1/3rd of the class was a waste because classmates made presentations about the oil industry in their countries but that may have changed now that the class is split into a JD section and an International student section. However, this will not change the fact that, even when Lowe does teach, he just reads off of a slide presentation that you have access to. You can either read the textbook, listen in class, or read the powerpoints. You don't need to waste time doing two of these things because they all give the exact same info. He doesn't take attendance or care if you show up.
TL:DR - Lowe is a terrible teacher (but a necessary one if you want to get into O&G business because he's a bigwig), but you can sign up for this class, never go, and still be just as prepared as your classmates as long as you look at the powerpoints.
