LAW217  A  CONSTITUTIONAL LAW II

Course Description
This course covers the history and scope of individual rights under the U.S. constitution. It begins by briefly exploring early models of constitutional decision-making using cases from the slavocratic regime as a context. We then trace the development of equal protection, due process and first amendment guarantees through to their contemporary formulations. In addition to our exploration of substantive law the courses is deeply concerned with how courts make decisions. We will also explore competing models of constitutional interpretation.
