    Additional Information:
    Welcome to Constitutional Law I(T)! I look forward to an interesting and productive semester studying constitutional law. As you will see from the course Syllabus, we will primarily focus on methods of constitutional interpretation and the role of the courts; the allocation of powers among the different branches of the federal government; and the allocation of powers between the federal and state governments. As noted in the course Syllabus, we will be meeting online, using Zoom.
