This class was a lot of work, but I thought the professor was great. Gave awesome feedback on exams and papers, outlined clearly in class what she was looking for on assignments, and was always available to help. I would take her again for any class.

Professor Halbert is one of the best professors at Temple. She was engaging and created a comfortable place for us to discuss the material and gave amazing, relevant feedback on assignments. This class was a lot of work and she was not an easy grader, but she was more than fair and you always knew where/why you lost points. Take her class!

Very harsh attitude/grading and I was kind of scared to go to class every day because I thought I missed something. Very unclear about due dates, she doesn't put anything on the calendar or put due dates on the assignments. Maybe I am just soft but this was the class I dreaded because she's very stern and made the class unable to enjoy.

Halbert is great. Yes, she can be a bit tough but that's bc it is a college class! She is very knowledgeable and this class is not that hard. Sometimes her grading criteria isn't great but she's not gonna fail you. Pay attention, do the few assignments, and have fun with it! I def recommend - she's not harsh but be ready to put in some effort.

Comment:
Although the class itself is pretty interesting, the work is extremely subjected to Professor Halbert's opinions. She can also be unclear with directions and will only tell you what she was looking for after she hands back the graded papers. Her feedback is also vague and more condescending than constructive.

I loved this lady. She really knows her stuff because she's an actual attorney. She does make you work for the grade, but she is so helpful with her feedback. She was a little rude at times but don't take it personal. She provides definitions for the tests because she doesn't believe in making students memorize material.

I definitely recommend this class for someone who has even the slightest interest in law. Prof. Halbert is very knowledgable and cares about her students. She will help you out if you need it and is very easy to talk to. If you read the cases and participate in class, you will probably do well. Be prepared to speak in class.

So. much. work. For a gen ed this was a ton of work but if you're interested in becoming a lawyer it is an awesome class you need to take. Professor Halbert really knows what she is talking about and will teach you a ton but be prepared to be called on in class, have homework due everyday, and have to participate in a few mock trials.

The mock trials for her class are fun and easy to get a good grade on but the papers are much harder. Do yourself a favor and just agree with her opinion, she seems to favor those papers. Really nice lady but an ehh teacher because she has never practiced law and that is evident

This lady is interesting. Show up, speak up, get to know her, make sure she remembers your name, and you will (most likely) do well. We got one exam, two papers, and two debates. Not bad.

At first I thought she was great, but over the time I realized that she didn't like me (just because). I participated in each lecture (was very passionate about projects and did great), attended all classes, did all the homework, in other words- did everything she asked us to do perfectly, and still got a B+. Wouldn't take her again.

This is not an easy class, you do have to work for it. Take advantage of extra credit opportunities and meet with her one on one and your grade will reflect the effort you put forth. Overall enjoyed class -- mock trials were really fun

Dr. Halbert's class is a very interesting Gen-Ed. You don't have any tests. You are graded on Judicial Opinions, Mock Trials, and Case Briefs. If you don't participate chances are she won't like you. In the beginning she 's a pretty tough grader because she doesn't tell you want she wants but once you get the hang of it the class is pretty fun.

Professor Halbert truly cares about her students and will go out of her way to help you. I learned a lot in this class and would absolutely take her again. It's a lot of work and she's a pretty tough grader, but if you put in the effort you'll get a good grade. She makes you work for it, but it's all worth it.

Doesn't clearly state what she wants out of an assignmentexam. Likes to tell you what it is she was looking for after she already handed it back to you. So you better learn how to read her mind. Gives you a grading rubric for an exam after you had already taken it. Very smart lady, but SHOULD NOT be a professor. No idea how to teach buss ethics.

I was looking forward to class, but it fell far below expectations, as it was less about immigration law as a whole (as describe in the catalog) and more about providing amnesty to illegal immigrants from Central America. Little attention was payed elsewhere. If you disagree with her, expect to get points off, with little explanation, if any.

It's an interesting class but def not worth it because of the incredible amounts of work you'll be given. Lots of readings. So much outside of class work. Very moody. She'll either be in a moderately good mood or in an extremely unpleasant mood. Can be condescending sometimes. Could've been a great course if a better professor taught it.

One of the best professors I've had at Temple. She took a boring class about government law and turned it into an interesting class with mock trials and debates, just great! I never thought I would have enjoyed this gen ed so much, definitely take it! Warning, she can be a tough grader but she gives great instructions and feedback.

You neeeeeed to do the reading she assigns!! It's not a lot, but I didn't do it and failed the quizzes and that's my own fault. Other assignments, though, are really easy, and she offers lots of opportunities for extra credit. Her tests and final are also pretty easy, and she's got a voice that's easy to listen to without falling asleep.
