Question about Harvard Professors!!

Postby lucky2014 » Tue Sep 04, 2012 10:00 am

Does anyone have any advice on where to find information/evaluations of Professors, their classes, at Harvard other than the official evaluations on the registrars website. (E.g. "Rate My Professor", this site offer a more in-depth perspective on the professors, not just a numerical rating.)

Also, any thoughts on:
1. The Social and Cultural Lives of Islamic Law ( Shahab Ahmed (visiting professor) Seminar: 2 Credits
2.International Law Workshop (Alford and Gabriella Blum) workshop: 2 Credits
3.Evidence (Schulman) 4 Credits
4.Israel Palestine Legal Issues (Duncan Kennedy) 4 Credits

Any insight would be much appreciated! Thank you!!

Can't speak from personal experience, but I have a couple of friends who loved Schulman. The prevailing wisdom at HLS is that as long as you don't take evidence from you-know-who, you're fine.

I had Duncan Kennedy for my 1L international/comparative elective and thought he was smart, interesting, and surprisingly lucid. He's very, very pro-Palestine, so don't think you're going to get a very balanced take on the conflict if you take this class. He tends to give exams that aren't really exams (word limited LCTH) which I loved but a lot of people did not love.
