    Additional Information:
    Welcome to Constitututional Law I(D)! In this course we will focus largely on the structural aspects of government. The first part of the course will use a variety of subjects to introduce us to some basic issues in understanding and interpreting the Constitution. We will then turn to a detailed look at the role of the courts in interpreting the Constitution, followed by a study of the separation of powers at the federal level. We will then turn to issues of federalism--the relationship between the state and federal governments.
