I enjoyed this course and it helped me to understand the basic parts of American Law. My only suggestion is to provide even more cases as examples to demonstrate the doctrines and statutes. Thank you.

A great first step on understanding the basic principles of American Law, providing an insight into impact on the systems we encounter on a daily basis and how these systems have developed over time.

The questions asked should be in such English Language that they address audience other than US citizens too especially in Criminal Law exams. Also, Constitutional Law and Property Law video lectures could be shortened (less than 15 minuites). Tort Law and Civil Procedure were taught very well. There was less MEAT in Property Law course.

this course isn't suitable for someone without any legal background, as it is rich and dense in information.

Some lectures were vague and the terms were ill-defined. You are required to deduce the definition.

Interesting course, but a bit too basic and superficial. Teachers were engaging though.

This course would have been better if the speakers were to focus more on the distinctive features of American law. As a would-be lawyer, who studied common law in the UK and Hong Kong, I don't find this course particularly useful, as the so-called "distinctive" features of American law are actually very similar to that of the English common law.

Interesting at times but not all modules had the same level of focus on the particularities of American law, some were simply a summary of the law in that area in general without highlighting what was unique to American law in that area.

It was a superficial course. It doesn't teach any law about USA, just present the inicial thoughts.

I dropped this after the first week when the professor blatantly misrepresented the law on product liability with respect to firearms. I want to learn about the law, I don't need to be indoctrinated. Unfortunately Professor Allen is being turned loose on an unsuspecting student body and that is too bad.

Unnecessarily stressful for a course I am auditing. It's sad, because the material is extremely interesting at the pace I can digest as opposed to the speed the course demands.
