39. Other comments:
n/a
N/A
A very worthwhile course, even for those not construction field. By it's very nature law is an interpretive endeavor, however I found the errors in the book to be unacceptable when weighed against the cost of the publication. I think you should push the sale of digital licenses for the book hopefully for less cost.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Mr. Hayashi was always willing to help when we needed or always offered.
Mr. Hayashi got to know each student, he even knew our names by the end of the first class. He motivates his students to keep up with assignments and tries to keep the assignments and class activities interesting.
Mr. Hayashi makes sure everyone is on the same page and understands the material of the lecture before moving on to the next subject.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
He had good examples pertaining to the different sections of construction law.
Mr. Hayashi is very easy to talk to, he knows the subject matter well and is always approachable. When we talk about construction law and contracts he takes the time to break down the sometimes complex concepts so they are easier to understand. He tries to be sure everyone understands before moving on, and encourages questions.
I like how he uses examples that happened and relates it to the subject. I also like his teaching style and personality about this subject.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Very educational and lots of information. I learned alot and enjoyed the class.
This class was great, I really learned a lot. I've never taken a law class before. I would like to think that the next time I read through a contract, I won't be intimidated, and I am definitely going to read the contracts I sign. Going through the AIA contracts were especially helpful as I can immediately apply what I've learned in school to my job.
This helped me a LOT in understanding construction law and I am ending the semester feeling more confident in what I will be seeing in the future.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I would definitely recommend Mr. Hayashi because he has lots experience in the field and knows what he's talking about when it comes to construction law.
Yes, he is a great teacher and a good person. He is always available and willing to take the time to help. It is obvious that he has a passion for what he does and wants to help his students have a better understanding of construction law and contracts.
YES! Mr. Hayashi is very knowledgable in this subject and is a great teacher to learn from!!
