Super good lecturer, probably the best I have had so far at IU. The material is actually pretty interesting. Graded only by quizzes/exams which is pretty much just how closely you read the questions

Prof McCrory is a great professor!!! Took his class 100% online (COVID). Difficult because you're only graded on a few tests + quizzes but his lectures are great (don't miss them!) - he's hilarious and it's enjoyable if you participate. Would definitely take another class with him!

Comment:
What isn't taught in class, and was planned for the day, is taught in office hours and never again. He has "secret words" that he says one time and never says them again that end up being important on tests. Makes students feel stupid for asking questions and finds it funny when students get bad grades. However, he is very qualified to teach.

Professor McCrory is one of the best professors I have had while at IU! His lectures are engaging and full of helpful information. This class isn't a blow off class at all, but I actually really enjoyed going to class and the material that was taught. He also gives great examples during class to help you understand.

Comment:
The only grades in the class are three tests, so if you do bad you're screwed. Also, the lectures are rarely actually finished in class because he welcomes too many tangential questions. He also has office hours which act as another lecture, if you don't go you will miss out on lots of information that he doesn't cover in class.

I had no interest in law, I took this class because it was required for my business major, but I have never been more engaged in a class in my life. McCrory is an amazing teacher, he loves what he does and is good at it. Write down every little thing he says and talk through scenarios with a group before exams in order to beat the trick questions

Is McCrory qualified to teach this course? Yes. Absolutely. He is probably one of the most qualified Profs I've had within Kelley, however that does not equal a good teacher. He is egotistical, rude, and self centered. He routinely laughs at questions he thinks are dumb, and he is one of the most disorganized Profs I've ever experienced.

Comment:
Office hours are pretty much mandatory because the class is super disorganized. There are no powerpoints or anything so the lectures tend to go off on tangents. (He really just calls on students though so it isn't even really lecturing). Anyway, your notes will be a disorganized mess and you will get a practice exam with no answers to study from.

Comment:
I really enjoy McCrory and his class. The only issue is that the exams are very hard and they are the only assignments in the grade book. Additionally, office hours are held multiple times a week and act as additional lectures. As my schedule didn't allow for my attendance, I felt like I was at a major disadvantage in the course.

Attend every class! He loves to have pop quizzes based on the content. READ THE TEXTBOOK AND TAKE LOTS OF NOTES. He won't cover everything in class that is in the textbook but still expects you to know that information. You must attend his is office hours. They are basically another lecture and he will go more in-depth and move ahead in content.

Definitely the toughest class i've taken in Kelley, but also one of the best. You'll learn A LOT from him and make sure you go to class. I worked hard and got a B+, so it's not exactly a GPA destroyer if you work hard.

You either love him or you hate him. I personally don't know how anyone could like him as a professor, but I have some friends who do. If you have him, plan on attending every class, going to every office hour (which is basically another lecture for an hour 2-3 times a week), read the book, study in groups, and you might do okay.

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR. He holds "office hours" 2 times a week, which is really another lecture. If you can't make it to these "office hours" you are at a major disadvantage because he covers material he sometimes doesn't cover in class. He also puts things on the exam he barely even talks about. Worst professor I have had in college so far.

Lots of pop quizzes that will mess up your grade, even if you did the reading (also, you can't ask for the quiz answers). Says he'll give extra credit but then only offers 2 chances that don't save your grade at all. He is not very approachable and will make you feel dumb for asking questions. If you're not interested in law, don't take his class.

He is super tough on the class and has random pop quizzes that are really tricky. He also is terrible to athletes that have to miss class for athletic events and does not let you make up any points. Claims to give lots of optional extra credit exercises, but only gave 2 out which were worth nothing.

Hands down the best professor in Kelley that I have yet to encounter. Easily can get an A if you show up and pay attention in lecture. Readings are helpful, but not necessary if you attend office hours. I would take his course every semester if I could. If you have any interest in learning about law from the best of the best, take this class.

McCrory is an absolute GOAT. I don't know a single person who doesn't like him as a professor. This will definitely be your favorite class of the semester. Best L201 teacher by far. IF YOU GO TO OFFICE HOURS ONCE A WEEK, YOU WILL GET AN A. Take good notes and you'll think its all "chump". I also definitely recommend having a study group.

NEVER miss lecture. He goes over a lot of content and some of his in-class examples are on the exam. Handwrites notes on the whiteboard and doesn't use PowerPoint. Definitely take a lot of notes and don't skip the reading. There are a lot of pop quizzes, but usually pretty manageable. Make sure to do all of the extra credit and study the detail.

Prof McCrory is a really cool guy and gives great lectures. The class subject matter is a little dense at times, but he's entertaining enough to make it interesting. To make up for how tough the class is, he gives a lot of extra credit, which is greatly appreciated.

This class is definitely tough. Only 3 exams, 10 or so pop quizzes, and a ton of content. Keep up to date with the readings, regularly go to office hours, NEVER skip lecture and you'll be fine
