Took Burson for Corporations last semester. Class is a bit dull, but he is a very nice professor. Upside, you go into the exam knowing what to expect and his exam is very fair.
This is a good post. I took Burson and he is a nice guy, extremely easy-going, with no surprises on the exam. He's one of my favorite professors.
People either love him or hate him because his lectures are disorganized. He'll frequently remember a point or callback to a case or principle he's covered before, without really making it feel like there's a cohesive plan to what he's doing. I ultimately felt like he covered everything, but you have to expect some confusion in the meantime.
I should say on this that I've heard he changed the style of the class since I took it. He said he now runs it more like a law firm, and I have no idea what that means in the context of a law class.
I've heard really good things about Badawi. Sale is allegedly intense, though extremely knowledgeable. If you're interested in transactional work, securities regulation with her is probably a good call.
