Constitutional Law Seminar (3)

This course highlights American constitutional developments from ratification to the twenty-first century. In addition to reading the usual legal/judicial materials, the seminar will pay attention to important constitutional developments outside of the courts. One central course theme will be the extent to which the official constitution fairly describes how constitutional change has taken place throughout American history. Another theme will be to trace the influence of liberal, republican and (arguably) racist themes on American constitutional development. Students will be expected to prepare a term paper and several short presentations during the semester. Papers meeting the requisite standards may be used to satisfy the Advanced Writing Requirement. P: Constitutional Law I and Constitutional Law II
