Alicia Evans

As for EO, I got some information from previous LL.M. students though I ended up not taking those class. (I took PC with Pritchard, instead.) They say: Evans puts more emphasis on basic concepts and financial aspects, in addition to purely legal aspects, than other professors; Evans puts less emphasis on M&A than other professors (since she offers a separate "M&A" class).  Evans gives moderate amount of reading, while Howson gives tremendous amount.

Evans is very good. She is organized, smart and fair. There are no fire-works in her class and the pace at which she covers the material is quite slow but it isn't boring.

I spoke with a friend who had Evans who said he liked her as a prof but her final was very tough

One of the EOs is for people with business backgrounds (the 4 credit one), the other (the 3 credit) is for those without a business background. I have EO with Evans right now. It's not bad but it's not a thrill either.  Evans is very good and very thorough. No fireworks, but not boring. In two words I would say: ho hum. Having said that, the subject matter is very important and it's great to get the fundamentals so I highly recommend taking EO at some point.

Evans kind of sucks...  She's a nice lady, but her class is boring.  Some people who I know really liked her.  She does take the scary out of business stuff, which for me was good.  Sadly, her final had little relation to the class material, was much more detailed and challenging than she had ever been in class.  I didn't do terribly in the class, so everyone must've felt like they did pretty poorly, but it did leave me feeling disturbed after the exam.  I'm not sure bored to tears is the right way to describe the class, but it was not good for me.

I had Howson for EO and Evans for M/A.  Definitely liked Howson 200 times better.  Evans is nice, but I just couldn't stand her class or her teaching style - put me to sleep.  Howson, on the other hand, is humorous and engaging.  Howson is arguably one of my all time favorite professors ? ever

I took EO with Professor Howson without a business background and did just fine. I also took Professor Evans for M&A, and comparatively, I much prefer Professor Howson. While there are no business basics, he definitely understands that not all of his students were investment bankers before law school.
