Hey there,

I am presently enrolled in Business Organizations at uOttawa with Prof. Frankie Young, trying to solicit some info on her in terms of what her course was like, what her marking was like, what kind of prof she is, her demeanor etc. There are no reviews about her on ratemyprof. She last taught at Western according to her bio. 

Could anyone on this thread who took one of her courses fill me in? Thanks!

I didn’t have her personally but I knew people who did. She’s very friendly and very accommodating. Seems like a prof that would enjoy a visit during office hours. Genuinely cares about her students.

I didn’t know she taught classes like Business Organizations, though. At UWO she taught Aboriginal law.

I’ve never heard anyone say a bad thing about her.

This was the feedback I was hoping to receive 🙂 Thank you! This year she's teaching Business Organizations, Aboriginal Law, and Trusts. I may take all of them with her.

She taught me property law during 1L. Fantastic prof. Her exams required you to examine a few cases in great depth (rather than other courses that might want you to discuss as many cases as possible). 

As mentioned by @TobyFlenderson, she is a wonderful woman that is very patient and kind in class (don't fear getting things wrong when contributing in class). One story that stands out though, is when I got a Western Law-sponsored internship and the names of all the hires were shared. She personally sent me an email to congratulate me, despite me really not knowing her that well. I can also say that she taught last year at Ryerson/Lincoln Alexander/TMU but apparently she left part way through the year so its good to hear she's doing well in Ottawa.
