He was always willing to help and genuinely cared about his students. Pay attention, respect his class rules and hand in your homework on time and you will do well in his class. Also his end of the semester exams aren't difficult, it will be either be an essay or something else that you will at home but be given class time to do.
If you are willing to not be obnoxious then take the class. Otherwise don't bother because Mr. Venezia actually teaches.
Best teacher ive had at UC. he sparks the interest in the student by removing all outside factors like phones and laptops. his class is about Law and the is jusice system but more than anything you learn life lessons. that's his purpose. this man clearly has the experience and you can go to him about anything related to his class, school, or whatever. he doesn't judge you and he understands how you are. by the time you see him its too late. so pay attention.
He is amazing. His classes are very knowledgeable and you learn alot. If you need help, he is there for you. Love him!
