This is an introductory course on constitutional law. Among other topics, it covers judicial review, separation of powers, federalism, 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. However, the course will examine individual rights in the context of federal and state power, especially as structured by the Fourteenth Amendment.

This course satisfies the Constitutional Law Requirement.
