BEST PROF I'VE EVER HAD

He is absolutely wonderful. Very clear, accommodating and makes an otherwise dull course fascinating and fun. His review courses are outstanding-really helps you know what to put in your outline. His exam isn't simple (especially the second semester), but its impartial and he's such a great teacher it makes up for having to take the exam

Incredibly clear explanations. Friendly guy. His review courses are absolutely outstanding - do NOT miss them. I found his exam rather difficult - at least the multiple choice part. Just to give you an indication of how much I liked and respected this prof, I got a C+ in his class but I stlil have nothing but great things to say about him.

He IS the greaexam prof at Hastings- he's on leave now (?) fall semester material is easier than spring semester material- beware, his exams can be difficult, especially his MC questions- overall, outstanding human being and prof. Class is entertaining and fascinating. Wish all Hastings prof were like him.

I did not do well in this class---my B became a C. But he is super chill and he really tried to help me. He is very accommodating in office hours. As a 3L, I agree he is the greaexam prof. at Hastings! No difficult feelings!=)

Honestly, greaexam prof. ever... He's hillarious, witty, clear, patient, always available, and gives impartial exams...If Hastings cared about the quality of its faculty, they should tenure prof. Sylvester

The greaexam visiting prof.! He goes over the material until EVERYONE understands. He reviews each chapter of the material. He exams part MC and part essay (just like the Bar). His office door is always open. Eventhough he is super intelligent, he never makes you feel like you're asking a stupid question.
