LEGL 4900 - INTL LEGAL TRANS
Group presentation is 25%, contract project is 10%. Only a midterm and non-cumulative final; you're responsible for quite a bit of material for both. Weekly current events journals are collected at the midpoint and end of the semester.
Pros: Wonderful teacher and class. She is so friendly and approachable, and I found the material to be interesting.

LEGL 4900 - INTL LEGAL TRANS
Pros: Extremely nice and friendly. She'll help you and work with you on all your homework and assignments.
Cons: She tends to fly through the material and sometimes even mumbles. It's tough to stay attentive and understand the concepts in class. Tests seem strait forward but your grade will be surprisingly lower than you expected.

Pros: She is an excellent teacher who knows what she's teaching. She is also very available to help and answer your questions at all times. Also, 30% of your grade is a "given" A as long as you do the work, which makes up for the test.
Cons: Her tests are in no way "easy" they require studying and effort, and she will be the first one to tell you that. The hardest part is getting used to the format and giving enough info. However, you do get a study guide to use.
Excellent class, and excellent teacher.

5*****
Pros: Best and nicest teacher I've had

She has outlines of each chapter that help you understand the material better

She will go the extra mile to help her students
Cons: The test is long and requires a lot of writing

Test can be hard if you don't understand the format
I absolutely loved Dr. Pagnattaro's class. She is such a great professor; possibly the best I've had yet at UGA. Her class is by no means easy though, and the Honors test is pretty long and difficult. You do get to have a sheet of paper with notes when you take it though. I just enjoyed how her class could have been so boring, but she took the subject matter and made interesting just by her being the great teacher she is. On top of that, she will do absolutely anything to help a student understand the material or try to improve their grade. Overall, her class is good if you pay attention, participate in discussions, and study her outlines hard. I took her during a summer session and really enjoyed the class.

4****
Pros: Tests are fairly easy if you know your stuff; she lets you have a one-page, front and back "cheat sheet" of whatever you want. She's a pretty gracious grader and understands that her tests are hard to finish.
Cons: She talks very quickly and is sometimes hard to understand. The book is not an easy read. It's always hard to write everything you need to for a test before time runs out. She takes attendance and starts subtracting from your average after you miss two classes.
There is one team project, in which you present an argument for a past court case. You have to keep up with current events and write a response to an article every week, plus responses to the court case presentations.

Pros: For a Legal Studies class, Professor Pagnattaro makes it interesting. She is one of my favorite teachers I've ever had (which is saying a lot because it was one of my few B's I've ever received in college). She demanded a lot, and I would recommend going in and seeing an example of a test of what she considers an A because her honors tests are all hand written.
Cons: It's a lot of reading, but as long as you take notes and go to class (which is mandatory for her class) you will get the hang of how to take her exams because that's the bulk of your grade.

Pros: Excellent class.
Cons: Difficult tests. Mumbles sometimes.
Very engaging style of lecturing. Tries to make (dry) material interesting, and regularly ties subject matter into current events. Tests are difficult but fair. She wants students to succeed and is easy to approach with questions. Would highly recommend this class.
