He goes really slowly, if it's one of those annoying family in-fighting cases with like 30 parties all with the same last name, he'll get them all on the board in the proper configuration and take us through each party's interest, we run examples on the confusing shit until everyone gets it, and he freely admits when stuff is needlessly technical and dumb but we need to cover it anyway. So amazing.
Con Law, on the other hand, is just the prof standing up there clicking through slides saying crap like, "We're not going to cover Citizens United in this class, but I had you read it because, like, Citizens United, am I right?"
Is there something about the subject of Property that just naturally draws professors whose personalities are just completely grey and uninteresting? Nicest professor, but man, can he put a room asleep (ignoring how tedious the material is).
Shame about your Con Law professor though, mine has been pretty fantastic. Taught the subject for over a decade now and can really command a room. Has made the material so much more interesting because of it.
