Could any of you Elder Ls offer any other advice/comments on these profs and/or general survival of 1L?
Haven't had Powers, but he is the former Dean of the law school and I have heard he is outstanding. As for Mullenix, she will be quite the experience. She has students on call for designated cases/concepts and tends to grill students pretty hard - but it will be okay. In the grand scheme of things, being called on is not important. Her exam is a doozy. It will be a straight multiple choice test with 40 questions. Typically, if you get half the questions right, you should be set with an A- or A. Her questions are ridiculously tricky. I got an A- and I would be surprised if I got half the questions right haha. As for Chesney, he is great. He keeps things pretty light in class and is a pleasure to learn from. But he teaches his class in chronological order instead of by section. So it is a lot of jumping back and forth between concepts, which can be good or bad based on what you like.
If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
