Here are brief descriptions of the major sections of this website:
Courses: Information about the courses I teach at the University of Iowa. The main Courses page also contains general book information for my courses. The Courses page contains links to pages for specific courses and classroom etiquette. Those pages contain general information about each course, the most recent syllabus, and sometimes additional links and information. Book info for my Fall 2020 courses is now on the Courses webpage. Information is also contained on the books page for each course: POLI:3101 and POLI:3121.
Teaching Evaluations: This page contains links to the teaching evaluations (written and multiple choice responses) for my undergraduate courses. Depending on the course, the data go back as much as 15 years.
Prelaw/Advising: Various bits of information for my advisees and those interested in law school, including my Prelaw FAQ.
Resource Links: Mainly a set of links I like to have handy, but which also may be useful for those in my courses.
Books and Movies: Lists of books and movies with a legal or judicial aspect that I've found interesting or of value.
