We have Property here, with the fabulous Lisa Austin. Many of my profs are excellent, and Lisa Austin is defnitely up there. She’s organized, entertaining and firmly on track with covering the cases she says we’ll cover. If there’s a chance we won’t get to everything, she adjusts on the go, and we never feel rushed in the pacing. She also provides us with the kind of information that 1L students cherish, like how to try to connect the cases to each other, and so on. It might take a while before we’re able to do it, but it helps so much, having some idea of what needs to be done. It also provides us with a welcome sense of direction–of where we should be going with our thinking as we study and review.
She’s also a good speaker and has a fun sense of humour, which livens up the subject matter considerably–though I will confess that property is a subject that I am fond of anyway… I love the paradigm shift that comes with looking at it in a legal context. The “bundle of rights” idea just opens up so many possibilities and allows for so much of what we hear, re terms bandied about in everyday life, to make so much more sense.
