Great professor. Motivates students and pushes them to be better. He expects you to know concepts and materials before you come to class and treats class as a review session to better understand concepts. He may seem hard to talk to at first, but is extremely willing to meet with students after class or one-on-one to discuss student performance.

Brutal class. Took in the winter semester which made it somewhat easier since we left off chapters and had a crib sheet for the exams. Reyna is passionate about the subject and is always willing to help students understand the material but his exams are so tough. Doing well requires reading chapters before the class and doing the practice questions that are on the end of the chapters. The cases help provide context on how to apply law but dont need to remember specific cases for the exam. This class wouldn't be too bad if it wasn't for the dumb grading system set by Smith. All in all, dont take his class if you only expect to attend lectures and get by with notes, this class requires much more effort than any other Smith class.

Fantastic Smith Professor. Challenges students and makes youengaged in the material. The class is extremely difficult, but it would be unfair to say the professor is not good. Tough grader - avoid if you are trying for an easy A.

Professor Reyna is a harsh grader and doesn’t explain the material well. He expects his students to be like law students and know the material before getting to class so he doesn’t have to teach. He tries to be funny but comes off as condescending and does not try to help students pass the course. He grades unnecessarily hard as he says not to go off of the book but to do it his way which he doesn’t explain well.

To be honest, Reyna has a good personality; he is funny and loves to talk about related cases in class, but he is not as supportive while it comes to learning the course materials. Reyna is a smart guy, and he has VERY high expectations for his students. I understand this is a challenging course, especially during the pandemic, but additional help for the students could mean so much. He does not have any TA in this class, and there is nothing else to help you study besides reading the book and cases and listen to his lecture. The reading is confusing, but you can learn something from it if you put enough time to read through it. The exams wroth 80% of the total grade, but there are SO many typos in the exams, making the complicated exam questions even more difficult to understand. 10% of quizzes are not helpful either; it has nothing to do with the exams; it contains some basic knowledge and a writing prompt, and it could cause you to get points off if you mess up ( FYI, he is a harsh grader on the writing portion of the quiz and exams). Another 10% would be presenting cases in class. Rayna encourages students to do so because, in that way, we will have a "conversation" directly with him. I understand that he is trying to get people to engage in class, but I also believe that he is not considerate enough for all students. I am not a person who would give up easily, but the current situation makes me feel like I have no hope in this course. Lastly, If you are good in Law stuff and willing to challenge yourself, you should take him. But for a student who speaks English as a second language and or wants an easy A, you might want to reconsider your options.
