IMPORTANT NOTE on CLOSED Classes: All the online classes and many of the on-campus classes close quickly. You should register ASAP if you are interested in any class. If you change your mind, please drop the class immediately so others can enroll. If the class is closed, consider the Wait List procedures; be aware of the rules and the limitations. Otherwise, consider these options: 1) register for another section if available; 2) register for another class; 3) consider registering in a future semester; 4) show up for the first day of an on-campus class and discuss with the instructor; or 5) forget about it and move on. The instructor will not intervene with the wait list procedure.

Please be aware that, once a class reaches maximum enrollment and “closes,” on or after the first day of the semester, even if “available” spaces appear on SURF due to drops, it is within the instructor's complete discretion on whether to add more students at that time. Drops after the first day are normal attrition and are factored in when setting the maximum enrollment. The class has started and important assignments and subject matter have already been covered. Please do not email the instructor. Thank you for your understanding.

Teaching Philosophy/Style and Class Management/Activities

I have been teaching law and psychology classes in the San Diego community college system since 1977. My philosophy has always been to use the subject matter as a vehicle to instill academic skills (specifically writing) in the student that will be beneficial for beyond community college. As an active UCLA postdoctoral alumnus, I am very familiar with what is expected of the student as an undergraduate, graduate, and beyond.

As to the subject matter, it has always been my philosophy and practice to discuss the underlying academic knowledge and apply it to specific real life circumstances that may arise given the student the "best of both worlds" (academic and practical).
