Can we please have some feedback, helpful hints, and tips from upper class folks?
Thanks in advance.
The little i know about Johnsen is she was Obama's appointment for legal counsel, but never got confirmed.
WIlliams is super smart and a great lecturer and makes con law very simple. Fairly socratic, we had a pretty big class, but I would imagine with 4 sections it would be even more socratic. You will learn tons from him.
He specializes in constitutional design, federalism, 2nd amendment.
The cons for Williams is he teaches a lot of his own views on Con law, which make a lot of sense and are very interesting, however they are not really the actual law. That being said con law is about the least used subject in practice for most lawyers so its not the end of the world. His unique views also make chemerinsky or any other supplement completely pointless or even harmful.
