You can read clsevals
for more info but:
BHS: Very nice outside of class, but teaches through the most intimidating cold-calling you'll ever experience. 2-3 people usually get called per class. Have fun. Tip for first day: Sibbach has a dilemma. Usual disclaimer: cold-calls don't matter for grades.
Dorf: Haven't had him yet. I think you know when you're on call.
Hillman: Dry sense of humor. Wrote the book he's using. Will not give you the reading assignments in advance. His hornbook is a must-have. Cold-calls about the same number of people as BHS, and is disappointed when you clearly haven't read, but he's nowhere near as intimidating.
Atlas: <3 . Director of Lawyering Program and the best lawyering prof in my biased opinion. You will learn a lot about grammar, writing style, and bluebooking. He's kind of strict, and he even expects you to use a ruler to make sure the margins are the right length, but he's really nice. His section is usually overrepresented on Law Review. I know who 2 of his 4 TAs will be, and they're pretty chill.
Heise: Very engaging and funny prof and makes the subject easy to understand. Probably no need for supplements. Will divide the room in 3, and cold-call one part on Monday, one part on Tuesday, and one part on Wednesday. Not as exact as Dorf, but at least you know which days you should be prepared. Will also cold-call if you make eye contact.
