This is a 4-unit introductory course on Constitutional Law. The class covers the following topics: judicial review, separation of powers, 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. The course will also include material on the issue of executive power. The Bill of Rights will not be the chief 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.
