I had a wonderful time taking the course. Professor Chaplin is a wonderful and very enthusiastic instructor, though she can be a meticulous grader (just as she is in CLAS0132: History of Rome). The work load was very manageable: there were short/mid-length readings between each class, there were cases for us to try and solve in preparation for discussion, there were two 1-hour long exams covering both rounds of midterms, and there is a 4-6 page final paper. Value-wise, an extensive knowledge on Roman law isn't the most useful thing in the world, but I have found that it helps when trying to understand modern law, specifically within the U.S.

Professor Chaplain is awesome and is extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the course material. There was a lot of readings but only two writing assignments and two tests. Discussion participation was a big part of grading.

This course was defiantly interesting and covered Roman history from the Republic to the Empire and did not cover any material past the separation of the Eastern and Western Roman Empires. There is a lot of reading, most of which is necessary to participate effectively in discussions and reading material is central on the tests. Chaplin definitely expects a lot, but is fair when it comes to grading.
