This graduate seminar provides an introduction to the study of law and political science. The readings will begin with constitutionalism and the core institutions of American government (Congress, Presidency, judiciary, administrative state) before turning to consider democratic legitimacy as a descriptive and normative problem for scholars working on the intersection of law and politics. Readings will be drawn from twentieth century "classics" of political science and legal scholarship as well as more contemporary arguments and analyses that treat longstanding questions. No particular background is required beyond familiarity with the basic framework of American government.


Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
