This is a 4-unit introductory course on Constitutional Law. Although it is primarily a substantive class, the course will also focus on skill building, including small group exercises and practice exams. It will enhance students' abilities to read and synthesize cases, to formulate effective legal arguments, to engage in critical analysis, and to write law school exams.

Although the course will cover basic principles such as judicial review and federalism, the focus will be on the role of the courts in assessing questions of equal protection (based on race, gender, sexual orientation and disability) and establishing the boundaries of fundamental rights, including sexual conduct, procreation, and marriage. We will also address contemporary constitutional controversies, such as the question of same-sex marriage.
