This is an introductory course on constitutional law. Although it will examine judicial review, separation of powers, and federalism, it will explore in greatest depth guarantees of Due Process and Equal Protection under the 14th Amendment. The course 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. The course may also analyze leading cases from 2011-12 Term.. The Bill of Rights (including the First Amendment and constitutional criminal procedure) will NOT be the focus of this course.

This course satisfies the Constitutional Law Requirement.
