About Boalt Professors Review

Update (April 16, 2010): Boalt Professors Review has been retired (and the comments closed) thanks to some terrific work by several Boalt students.

Boalt Professors Review
(BPR) is a place for students to post questions and comments about professors and classes at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall). Here are some tips and some ground rules for using this resource.

Course Evaluations:

You asked for a place to write and read substantive course evaluations and now you've got it! To read or write evaluations about a particular professor or course, find the professor's name in the professor index on the left and click on it. Within each professor's section is a list of courses taught by that professor, where you can leave substantive feedback for any courses you've taken. (You can also search for courses using the course category list.) Leave your feedback in the comments section, keeping in mind the ground rules outlined below.

Update: we have not yet begun to add Fall 2008 courses. We hope to have this done sometime before the conclusion of Thanksgiving Break, so you can comment here while you fill out your regular course evaluations.

Spring 2008 Course Thread:

Our friends at Nuts and Boalts have been running a Spring 2009 Course Thread, where you can feel free to ask all you class and professor related questions.

Ground Rules

Please keep in mind that this is a public forum that is not password protected. Many of the professors that teach at Boalt may be looking to maintain their stellar academic reputation and, one day, alternative employment. With that said, we would like you to keep your comments civil and productive (i.e., if you disliked a particular part of a course, explain why), to refrain from personal attacks, and to follow the use of asterisks in names to prevent this page from turning up on a google search for that professor's name. In keeping with these ground rules, we reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason.
