Im in Honors sociology at MGiill now and wanted to tell you how lucky you will be to have lewis as a prof. I know you will read some comments that are not so positive, but take it from someone with experience, he is among the best there is. No, he doesnt use power points or give super easy assignments, but he will teach you skills that are necessary for success. I learnt more from him than i have in many university classes. If you want an easy grade, skip it. If you want to learn dont miss it!!!

Hard and boring class, yes. But at least he seems to be aware of it, and he only takes the 2 best of your 3 exams.

What is the point in taking a SOCIOLOGY of law course if the teacher is barely going to explore the sociological realm of law? This guy is as boring as dry unflavoured crackers!

expects the essays and reports to be written in a CERTAIN way. but does not bother explaining what that certain way is. when you hand it in, gives you a 70 because it was not done in that certain way!

I would say avoid this teacher is possible. his tests are almost impossible ( multiple choice questions with answers like a, a and b, a and c but not b, none of the above, all of the above) and most of the time you find yourself guessing. he is really monotone and not only does he not like you if you dont read the book, he still doesnt like you if you read it but got one of his irrelevant questions wrong during his boring ramble. just avoid him if you can, his classes are horribly unbearable!

Nice man. all test material comes from the text book (because he wrote it) in addition, most in class work is strictly concerning the class projects. btw there are 3...start them early.

lots of awkward silences. you know he's trying to get a something, because he's speaking and making sense, although he never really makees it clear just what his point is. go figure. he wrote the rm book and hates you if you don't buy it. royalties, you know how it is when you teach the most useless course at dawson.
