LAW217  A  CONSTITUTIONAL LAW II

Course Description
This course covers the protection of individual rights under the U.S. Constitution. The major topics will be substantive due process (e.g., the right to privacy), equal protection, and the First Amendment. Time permitting, we may also cover state action doctrine and Congressional power to enforce the Reconstruction Amendments. As we make our way through the materials, we will explore different methods of interpreting the Constitution, and take a look at selected constitutional doctrines from other legal systems for comparative purposes.
