Don't know much about Suk or your LRW people, but I had the other 3 (I assume section 1?). Manning is one of the best professors I've ever had, and is an awesome human being/total teddy bear on top of that. He does coldcall, but he does it in an extended colloquy format and throws softballs for the most part. His exam is going to ask you to (a) describe the state of the law on that issue in detail, (b) apply law to facts, and (c) provide your evaluation of the law, and you should pre-write your answers for (a) and (c) as part of the outlining process. I really liked Crim with Lanni, although she got very strongly mixed reviews. Lots of open-ended discussion, not a ton of cold-calling. Exam is super straightforward, except that it usually includes a "propose a criminal statute and discuss any issues it might raise" question. I'll echo what acrossthelake said about Sarge, at least in the sense that he is very theoretical, more of a philosopher than a law-and-economics guy, and doesn't spend a lot of time talking about doctrine. He's also a very eccentric guy, for better or for worse. Exam is 3 short issue spotters and 1 pure policy question. Rumor has it that volume matters a ton on his exam (a DS exam from my class posted on one of the exam banks was like 10.5k words).
