Great professor but the exam was INSANE!

I did not like Prof. Tarkington's style of teaching. She would ramble on and on about the dissents of cases and go off on irrelevant tangents about thing she personally found fascinating. She did not hold my attention and I'm not sure I learned anything in her class. I got an A on her final …more despite her instruction not because of it! less

She's an awesome professor who writes a very difficult exam. She's always quick to help, though, whether through email or in office hours. Favorite teacher I've had so far in law school.

Get. Organized. She'll give you a substantial crib sheet for the final, but you better have it organized, because her final is brutal. She's not always clear in class, but she always clarifies if you approach her. Asks a lot of rhetorical questions. Again, make sure you structure your notes and …more study strategy. less

Prof. Tarkington was the best professor I have experienced in undergraduate and law school. Her expectations are crystal clear from the start. She superbly builds and layers the material in a clear and logical manner. Nothing about her teaching nor exams are structured to trick students. Take good …more class notes and read the rules carefully. less

Tarkington made a fairly straight-forward 1L subject, Civ Pro, more confusing than it really is. I don't think her lectures were very helpful in providing context or clarity of the Rules or their application. Her final exam was surprisingly very fair. I will, however, avoid her in the future.

I really enjoyed Tarkington. She threw in her own humor which I liked, but I know others didn't. She lets you know exactly what you need to know for the final, but you still need to study. Her exam made me think but it was not anything unexpected.

Tests are extremely difficult as the call of the question is not always clear. You may know your stuff - but it is interpreting the question that is critical. Lots of M/C on the final - very tough. Learned Civ Pro though! If you enjoy a serious challenge, you will love this prof!

She is brilliant and funny. Her lectures are engaging. She's always prepared and punctual and makes good use of time. She sets clear expectations. She has very high expectations for the essays on the final. Tough grader

For some unknown reason, Tarkington is determined to make things more difficult than they need to be. From day one, there is a great deal of fear-mongering about the course, subject matter, and exam. She wants you to be afraid of her. To hear her explain CivPro, it's somewhere between brain surgery …more and nuclear physics. Overall, pretty unpleasant. less
