I may be in the minority here, but I took Presser last year and really disliked the class. He phones in lectures he's clearly been doing for years and years. He never has any actual discussion with students in class really. His exam is so simple that I think a high school senior could do well on it...like seriously his questions are like who is favorite and least favorite SCOTUS judge and why? The class will almost certainly be curved so it's pretty hard to gauge how he grades at all. He also feels the need to name drop every scholar or judge he's met that he teaches about. "This was my contracts professor at Harvard" "I once got to eat lunch with Justice Thomas." "I was on Geraldo Rivera several times to talk about the Clinton impeachment."
The upsides are that you'll only have to talk maybe once or twice all year. You don't have to read. The exam is stupid easy, but that may be a bad thing because of the curve.
