I'll speak for Horwich SecReg, not because I took his class, but because I spoke with enough people who took it to know that it wasn't for me. It is a TON of work. The general consensus is that if it were accurately assigned credits based on the amount of work involved (due to the sheer amount of detailed, complex material he covers), it should be like a six credit class. Check out the past evaluations on Caesar if you want more details on this; the same comments to this effect are written year after year. That said, he is also known as a really, really great prof. So, for me, based on the amount of work/studying involved, I would only take this class if I were fairly sure I would be working with securities in a fairly detailed capacity on a regular basis. And since I won't be doing so, I decided not to take it. Several people have told me that if you're just going into general corporate law (e.g., M&A), you can learn everything about sec-reg that you need to know by self-studying the E&E and focusing on the few heavy-hitter SEC rules that general corp lawyers need to be familiar with.
