I've been told International/Foreign Legal Research is good, but I really don't care about good/fun at this point. Islamic Law only meets for a few weeks, is that easy?
Islamic law is pretty intensive for the 6 weeks you meet. It's neat that he's an Egyptian Supreme Court Justice, but he assigns a good amount of reading and you have to write a paper pretty much every week summarizing that reading. He also expects you to be prepared for class and will call on people. I wouldn't say it's hard, and it's certainly nice to be done after 6 weeks, but do know before signing up that he doesn't give out many As. Jurisprudence (Martinez) and whatever writing classes Kofele-Kale teaches are generally considered the easiest, meaning that the work load is relatively light AND that you can get a good grade if you put in some effort. Jurisprudence is also pretty interesting/theoretical and you can write about a really wide range of topics. Entertainment (Fogelman) law doesn't require a ton of work, but I know a lot of people who generally did well in law school and did not get A/A-/B+ in there.
