Overview

American history is full of timeless Supreme Court cases that are still constantly in the news, from Roe v. Wade to Brown v. Board. Americans still argue over the validity of these cases, but few will ever have to wade into the actual opinions of the cases to figure out what the judges thought about the law and why they ruled the way they did.

Everyone knows Roe v. Wade is about abortion and Brown v. Board is about segregation, but what parts of the Constitution applied to these cases? While most people might want to gloss over the fine print and not investigate further, every law school student will have to read these cases and understand the actual principles of the law, not simply the results.
This collection of important Constitutional Law cases appear in every Constitutional Law class across the country, allowing future law school students a chance not only to read these opinions but to understand basic principles of Constitutional law like equal protection and due process. Practicing lawyers quickly break down what each case means from a Constitutional law standpoint before the reader can view the entire opinion.

For those who are about to enter law school or those who are just interested in learning more about our nation’s most important cases, Constitutional Law Cases You Will Read in Law School is a helpful resource. A table of contents is provided to allow readers to quickly navigate between the cases.
