The consensus I've gathered is that Sadat is awful, Smith is really good, and Levin is very dry. But I would defer to someone who has actually had them.
Levin was nightmarish, at least for Civ Pro. It was the most work of all of my classes combined, and the final exam was the hardest I've taken in law school. I wouldn't take him unless you absolutely have to.
I wouldn't call Levin "nightmarish" at all. Yes, the Civ Pro exam was quite difficult, but it was exactly
what we all expected it to be--no surprises. It was a very fair test to see how much you studied. His grading was very fair too--I made a couple big mistakes, but I wasn't overly punished in the grading. The reading load for any Civ Pro class is always going to feel burdensome, so that is not specific to Levin.
I would advise someone to take Levin's Administrative Law class in a heartbeat; however, that doesn't mean I would advise someone to take him for Immigration Law.
To my knowledge, Levin has never taught Immigration Law. If they are going to hire someone with experience
to teach Immigration Law to take Legomsky's place, then wait to take it with that
professor. I don't know if they will hire anyone or not.
