SECURITIES REGULATION

 

SPRING 2001

 

 

I very much enjoyed this class.I had absolutely no background in the subject and I was a little hesitant to take the class.However, Prof. Georgakopoulos made is very interesting.He related a difficult topic to current events obtained from the newspaper - this made it easier for me to conceptualize the policy and rationale behind the rules.

 

Prof. Georgakopoulosí enthusisiam for this subject was contagious - I was motivated to go beyond class studies and read additional treatises.

 

Finally, I had heard before taking this class that his finals were very difficult - this may explain why past students were not satisfied - but if you apply yourself in Prof. Gís class you will learn a lot about an important subject.

Professor Georgakopoulos did a fabulous job; not only did he help me learn about the body of law known as securities regulation, but more importantly, he applied it to real world issues.Periodically he bring in the Wall Street Journal and explains what various parts mean and the context and meaning of articles.The value in this exercise is tremendous - seems he really goes the extra mile to teach us about lawyers in the real business world.

 

He is a good listener and fields questions well, weaving them into transitions for relevant material.He has been personable and organized.

 

Overall, I am grateful I had Prof.. G. for this class and wish I could take him in other courses.He is a rare gem on staff, given his education and insight into real-world business and economic issues, which is something Iíve felt this university has lacked in the past.

I loved this class, when I enrolled I was nervous about the subject matter I have no background in business or securities.Now I feel confident that I can understand securities regulation and I am actually very interested in the field.

 

Prof. G. took time to thoroughly explain the topics & slowed down when we needed extra help.I really appreciate his desire to make us learn.

Often times I find myself talking about this class with other people.The topics were so interesting that Iíd bring them at dinner or out with friends.I credit Prof. G. with inspiring me & creating this interest.He is truly a great teacher.His enthusisiam about teaching securities is clear.

 

I canís say enough good things about securities class.I would (& have) recommended this class to others.

This class not only increased my knowledge of the subject matter but also expanded upon and held situate other areas into better control.

 

The professor was very mindful and concerned that every student achieve a full understanding of all covered materials.

 

This is the second class I have taken with this professor and I believe this has been improvement in his methods.I person[ally] belief is that his teaching style is best suited for smaller class settings.

This has been my favorite class in law school by a long way.I liked the class size but that was only accountable for part of my love of this class.Professor Georgakopoulos is a talented teacher and makes the class fun.He makes students feel relaxed and at ease.This meant that there was a tremendous amount of class discussion.I think he really cares whether we understand the subject matter.He seems to enjoy teaching and his enthusisiam makes the class even better.He does a really good job of putting the material into a real world context.I wish that I could have taken more classes with him.This is one of the few classes where I feel completely comfortable with the subject matter and still remember and understand it all.

 

I think that if more professors had his teaching style and enthusisiam, law school would have been a much better and rewarding experience.

This has been my favorite class throughout my law school experience.Professor Georgakopoulos is enthusiastic about teaching all aspects and effects of law.Although securities regulation (as a subject) frightens most students away, Professor Georgakopoulos has broken down the subject material of the class into very manageable pieces.

 

I feel like, and know, I have learned about securities regulation, economics and administrative law in this class.His teaching style is refreshing.His enthusisiam is contagious and I wish I had taken more of his classes.

 

I am more confident because he makes (me) students talk by expressing their ideas and thoughts about regulation and cases in a comfortable, accepting atmosphere.

Itís a little difficult for me to evaluate the course because the subject matter is not of great interest to me.However, I found Prof. Georgakopoulos to be a pleasant fellow and extremely bright.I think professors like him go a long way towards eliminating the stereotype of law professors being crusty and arrogant.
