Overview

Part of a two-volume set, CONSTITUTIONAL LAW: Individual Rights continues to be a favorite with its tried-and-true E&E pedagogy. It is a problem-oriented guide designed and organized to complement major Constitutional Law casebooks. It takes students through the principal doctrines of constitutional law covered in a typical course, focusing on the constitutional provisions that protect citizens, specifically Takings and Contracts clauses, Due Process, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, and Equal Protection.

This edition retains the great features that have always made it a dependable source for students. The text is:

  • straightforward in nature, though not overly simplistic
  • presented in a format that is unique and time-tested. Its E&E pedagogy combines textual material with well-written and comprehensive examples, explanations, and questions to test students' comprehension of the material and provide practice in applying legal principles to fact patterns. The questions, which develop a variety of issues in one fact situation, are similar to those on a law school or bar examination
  • a problem-oriented guide that takes students through the principal doctrines of constitutional law that are covered in a typical course
  • designed to make students think, with depth and perception, about the larger issues of constitutional law
  • part of a two-volume set that includes a corresponding treatment of National Power and Federalism. Together, these volumes present a foundation in the doctrines and methods of constitutional law and constitutional argument
  • organized in easily digestible sections. It explains legal concepts and principles, followed by examples and analysis that illustrate how to apply these concepts and principles in hypothetical situations
  • strong in authorship, as the authors have more than 50 years of combined experience in the area of constitutional law

    The Fourth Edition also includes an abundance of updated & timely information, including:

  • all relevant Supreme Court decisions that were announced since publication of the Third Edition. Representative new case coverage includes: - Tenn. v. Lane (congruence and proportionality under the Fourteenth Amendment) - Goodridge v. Dept.of Public Health (Massachusetts decision on gay marriage) - Kelo v. City of New London, Conn. (Fifth Amendment Takings Clause decision regarding public use) - League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry (political gerrymandering) - McConnell v.
