E-Mail I Received From A ConLaw Student

May 12th, 2014

On the eve of my ConLaw final exam (which began 20 minutes ago), I received this awesome email from a student at another law school.

It is with great appreciation for your style and thoroughness in your lectures that I send this email.  I am wrapping up my 1L classes at the ****.  I have had difficulty in letting the ConLaw information click with the professor that I have.  He is a great guy and is incredibly smart with the material but I just didn’t absorb it as easily as I normally would in other courses.  The area of law is obviously more difficult than other doctrinal courses and, being that I am a part-time student with a full-time legal assistant job, I need whatever help I can get.  This sent me scouring the web for supplemental materials, and ultimately to your videos.

Your videos are absolutely amazing and the material you cover is, for the most part, the same as the cases we covered in class.  I have followed you on YouTube for about two (2) weeks now and have such a deep understanding of the material that tomorrow’s final is no longer such a fear for me.  It is for this knowledge that I truly thank you.  I realize your videos are intended more for your students, but my being so far away certainly cannot be a threat to the minds you are developing.  More importantly, I’m glad you are so far away because the lawyers you produce would likely be great competition to the lawyers being cranked out without you.

Again, thank you so much for what you do and for teaching it so well!  Your students will never know what they would have missed​ if they weren’t so lucky to have signed up for your course.

I wish more professors would make their lectures available freely on YouTube, so others can share in this knowledge. This summer I will be working on some platform to make all my videos more easily accessible.
