This is an introductory course on constitutional law. Among other topics, it covers judicial review, federalism, substantive due process, and equal protection. It examines how these concepts have been filtered through politics and institutional constraints during transformative eras of American history, such as the Founding, the Civil War, the New Deal, and the Civil Rights Movement. Individual rights and, in particular, the Bill of Rights will not be the focus of this course, except as structured by the Fourteenth Amendment.

Constitutional Law is a required prerequisite for the Death Penalty Clinic and Seminar, Federal Courts, Supreme Court Seminar, and Constitutional Litigation. It is also recommended that students complete Constitutional Law before enrolling in Administrative Law, Legislation, Immigration, Local Government Law, Environmental Justice, Employment Discrimination, Family Law, and Law of Democracy.

This course satisfies the Constitutional Law Requirement.
