Course evaluations (written by Penn Law students) can be helpful in assessing interest in a given course. To review course evaluations, please go to the Course Finder and click on a previously offered class. If the professor has online evaluations up, you can read the eval in the course description.
Note, online course evaluations are only open during advanced course registration and add/drop. Also, some professors only allow for hard copies (not online versions) of their evaluations. If you’d like to see course evaluations and they aren’t present online, hard copies are always available in the Registrar’s Office.
Students sometimes use exam schedules to inform their course selection decisions. The Fall 2015 Exam Schedule and additional exam information can be found here (will be updated later this summer).
Additionally, students often find it useful to review past exams and sample answers when considering a course (and when preparing for an examination in a class). Past exams and sample answers can be found here.
