As a former student, all I have to say is Professor Brensike is AMAZING. She is one of those rare professors who is both a gifted legal academic and a highly skilled and innovative practitioner. For the law students out there, particularly those with an interest in Criminal Law and Procedure, I highly recommend taking any one of her classes.
