Are there any St. J students who were in section C this past year?
Can you give a little info about:
I wasn't in Section C last year, but Pepper and Ward taught Section B.
Ward taught Intro to Law -- is that what you have her for? She was OK, kind of boring and she gave a TON of work for a pass/fail course -- way more than any other section. Though if you have her for Civ Pro, I've heard people really don't like her.
Pepper is a completely mixed bag. On the one hand, she's probably the best legal writing professor in terms of what you'll learn -- I know plenty of people who had other professors and just didn't teach half as well as Pepper. So substantively, she's about as good for legal writing as it gets at SJU.
However, she can be nuts at times. She's pretty funny, and anytime you see her outside of class she's awesome -- SJU has a Public Interest Auction every spring, and she got a pretty high bid from a group of students to go out for drinks. So she's generally pretty cool, but she can go off at any moment. She's not always clear on what she wants done in terms of assignments but expects you to be prepared anyway. And if, for some reason, she just doesn't like you, you're in for a rough year because she can be pretty harsh and sometimes outright mean. Just be in class on time, do the work, and participate when you can so that she won't call on you when you're unprepared. In short, you'll learn a lot with her, but it won't usually be fun.
