Overview

Constitutional Law: Individual Rights, part of a two-volume set, is a problem-oriented guide to the principle doctrines of constitutional law as covered in the typical course. This straightforward text walks the student through the constitutional provisions that protect individual rights: Takings and Contracts clauses, Due Process, Freedoms of Speech and Religion, and Equal Protection.

Designed to encourage students to think about the larger issues of constitutional law with depth and perception, this clear and informal text:

utilizes the unique, time-tested E&E pedagogy that combines textual material with well-written and comprehensive examples, explanations, and questions to test students' comprehension of the materials and provide practice in applying legal principles to fact patterns. The questions (in which there are often a variety of issues presented in one fact situation) are similar to those on a law school or bar examination.
parallels the major casebooks in its organization and will complement any constitutional law casebook
explains legal concepts and principles in digestible sections, followed by examples and analyses that illustrate how to apply these concepts and principles in hypothetical situations.

With thoroughly updated text and examples and explanations, the Fifth Edition also incorporates important Supreme Court cases, including:

District of Columbia v. Heller, on the right to bear arms
Gonzales v. Carhart, on regulation of abortion
Kennedy v. Louisiana, on the death penalty as cruel and unusual punishment
Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1, on benign race discrimination
Exxon Shipping v. Baker, on due process limits on punitive damages
Purcell v. Gonzalez, Riley v. Kennedy, Crawford v. Marion County Election Board, and Bartlett v. Strickland on voting rights
Davis v. FEC, on campaign expenditure limitations
Washington State Grange v. Washington State Republican Party, on ballot restrictions and right of association
N.Y. State Board of Elections v. Lopez Torres, on ballot access restrictions and right of association
FEC v. Wisconsin Right to Life, on political speech
Enquist v. Oregon Dep't of Agriculture, on equal protection class of one
Ashcrovt v. Iqbal, a prima facie case for alleging purposeful discrimination
Morse v. Frederick, on students' school speech rights
Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Ass'n v. Brentwood Academy, on speech rights of private schools in recruiting student athletes
Davenport v. Washington Education Ass'n; Ysura v. Pocatello Education Ass'n ; and Locke v. Karass, on speech rights of government employees
Pleasant Grove City v. Summum, on government speech on government property
U.S. v. Williams, on First Amendment overbreadth and vagueness

Part of a two-volume set that includes a corresponding treatment of National Powers and Federalism, these two study guides compose a strong and sophisticated foundation in the doctrines and methods of constitutional law and constitutional argument.
