Course Description:

In this course we will cover the development of American Constitutional Law by looking at how the case law has developed over our country’s history, how the social and political landscape has evolved, and how those interact and influence each other. In addition to focusing on development of American Constitutional Law, we will also analyze how that influences the current debates before the nation and our judiciary. By the end of the semester, students will have an introduction to American Constitutional Law, providing a basis for them to study this further should they go onto law school or for them to be a more informed and engaged citizen regardless of what is next in their lives.
