LEGL 2700
Legal and Regulatory Environment of Business
4****
Pros: -Tests are very fair

- gives examples that students can relate to

-approachable and friendly

Cons: -covers a LOT of material in one class period

-rarely ever lets class out early/cancels class

-going to class is crucial to doing well because he uses examples from class on the test

-textbook is tedious
Grow is a really nice guy and is very approachable! You can always review your tests afterwards and ask questions. He doesn't curve exams, however.

General: There is certainly a ton of information that is covered throughout the semester; however, he is a great professor for the job. While remaining completely professional at all times, he goes through the material at a good speed and structures the class so students can ask questions (usually concerning how a particular situation applies to the concept being covered).



Class structure: There are three midterm exams (50 multiple choice questions each) and a final. About five questions come from the textbook readings. Near the midpoint of the semester he plays a few documentaries that offer a nice relief from the rate of new material. If you participate in class readily, you can earn up to three extra points on your final grade.



I have found a strategy that greatly helps in this course. I take my laptop to each lecture and have the PowerPoint open (these are posted on eLC ahead of time). Note that just reading the PowerPoint will not earn you a good grade on the test. As he goes through the material, I use the "Notes" section of each PowerPoint slide to record as much said as possible. It organizes your notes on a slide-by-slide basis and keeps you completely engaged in class. Just a suggestion.

Pros: Great professor! Makes the subject interesting and gives great example. BUT do yourself a favor GO TO CLASS! I do not even own the book but if you go to class and take notes and write the examples down there is no way you can not make an A. He explains everything soooo well.
Cons: Tests can be tricky!
Cool guy

Pros: Notes are available to print before class, readings are reasonable in length, office hours between the professor and the TA are broad and BOTH are knowledgeable and helpful, examples given in class are almost always the same scenarios used on the exams, exams are all multiple choice, lecture is very class involved.
Cons: material can be boring at time because of the exhausted list of vocabulary, tests are more challenging than expected, a lot of study time is necessary to understand concepts and vocab in order to apply to a scenario, not much of a chance for grade improvement, extra credit is given for participation.

Pros: Such an amazing professor. He knows the subject and explains everything so well. I am not even interested in law and he made the subject very interesting.
Cons: Tests are difficult and detail specific.
You HAVE to go to class in order to do well. You also need to read the textbook. There is no homework or any other assignments so attending class and reading the textbook really isn't that bad. He's a great guy and I'd definitely recommend taking his class.

Grow is a great professor. He is young and so it is easier to connect with him. Legal studies is an extremely dry subject, but he does his best in trying to make it interesting. There's not much he can do though just because of the vast amount of material you will need to memorize (use note cards and you will be fine). I would definitely take this guy again, though.

Grow was such an interesting professor, he would answer any question and if he couldn't he would find an answer and report it at the beginning at the next class. Also he would use examples that were very easy to understand but still had merit to them. Any time I went to office hours he was extremely helpful as well.

Legal Studies can be boring but Grow does everything he can to make it interesting. He's a young guy and he's cool. Take him over Reed.

Pros: Cool guy and interesting to listen to.
Cons: The four tests are the only grades.
Grow makes a dull, required class interesting for those who have to take it. He is engaging when he lectures and very knowledgable over the material.

if you study, you can get an A. the first test I just read over my notes a few times and got a 68. second test I made note cards from his lectures and studied them over and over and over and got a 92. doesn't take attendance, but it is extremely beneficial going to the class. if you write down the examples he talks about, the test is super easy. I took the second one in less than 20 minutes.

Pros: This man knows every answer to every question ever. He is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. When you email him and ask a question, he will answer you back with a full paragraph detailed response. Awesome guy.
Cons: LOTS of information to learn. But key word- learn. You really learn everything and retain it, not just memorize and forget.

Pros: Professor Grow's class was probably one of the best ones at UGA. He's a funny guy who is always willing to help and is hilarious.
Cons: He goes over a lot of material in one class period so you have a lot to study for the exams. The exams aren't too hard if you attend class regularly and read the book.

Cool guy, speak up in class and go to his office hours and you'll be fine. The tests are fair as long as you go to class and do the assigned readings.

Pros: He is really nice and easy to understand. He posts the powerpoints online. It is a reading intensive class. Just do the reading and you will be fine. He does have 4 to 5 questions on straight from the reading that he does not go over in class.
