*QUICK NOTE - If you know your section number, it helps to tell people what section you are in. You will have all 4 classes plus your orientation class with the people in your section. You will likely have all three non-LAWR classes with your sister section (1 with 2, 3 with 4, etc.). The three non-LAWR classes will probably have one or two other section-pairings with you as well, but not always.*
I dunno man - I had the opposite schedule, and think I would have preferred this one. Done at 2:00 PM M-W, and only one hour of class from 11-noon on Thurs/Friday (a bunch of which get cancelled during the semester anyway.) Although, it really does frontload your reading since you have all three of your 4-credit classes Mon-Wed.
My thoughts on your professors (that I've had):
Burton - I really liked him, and think he really teaches the material well. He can get confusing at times but he's always helpful if you have questions. He may not be the most enthralling teacher, but he's interesting enough that it's not hard to pay attention... He's even funny from time to time. Final is difficult, but not too bad - I think it was 70 multiple choice questions (you get 2.5 hours) and one essay question (1.5 hours), weighted about 60% MC 40% essay for scoring. It will be open book, open notes, etc - anything except the internet you can bring in. I have a great outline for this class if you want it. This will be a big class, 60-80 people.
If you are a woman - forget everything I said about him, and expect to be ignored and/or berated.
Bohannan - I love Bohannan - she is very fair, and very kind, but she will make you feel like an asshole if you aren't prepared. Overall a very good teacher, and easy on the eyes. I did find her tests didn't treat me as well as other classes - her multiple choice is very tricky, and the issue-spotting essay is complicated. I had her for both Torts and Con Law I, and both semesters her tests were around 30 multiple choice questions and 1 essay with a 1500 word limit or so. You get 4 hours, but you can use the whole time as you see fit, not split like Burton's. It will be open book, open notes, etc - anything except the internet you can bring in. I have a great outline for this class if you want it.
Overall, I think you will enjoy both professors a lot.
