In fact that may make things easier so I don't have to petition HKS to get the credit and jump those hoops. What about just regularly attending a Leg Reg class with approval of prof? I figure with the large 80-student sections that this wouldn't be awkward or a problem? And if I just buy the casebook that should be all I need for course materials? Or would profs even say no to this because it's disruptive?
If you just want to learn, you may just want to pick up a hornbook. If you really want, though, then yes, you can ask for a prof's approval to sit in on the class. I'm pretty sure that you could find one (out of the three or four each semester) who would say yes — there's plenty of space in the classrooms, generally. And yeah, the only official course materials are usually the casebooks.
