Overview

Now there is an appealing new constitutional law casebook, designed to be a 'teacher's book' by stimulating thought, inviting classroom discussion, and helping professors teach more effectively. CONSTITUTIONAL LAW: Cases, Materials, and Problems supplies a comprehensive, problem-based examination of this vital area of study.

The authors make their book effective and flexible by:

  • including the principal constitutional law cases, edited as lightly as possible to allow the Supreme Court to speak for itself
  • using short notes combined with problems to expand on the text
  • achieving a teachable length of less than 1300 pages
  • building on the proven approach taken by coauthor Russell Weaver in his successful casebooks for other courses
  • providing insights into the problems and cases in the accompanying Teacher's Manual

Skillful use of the thought-provoking problem approach:

  • helps students delve deeper into constitutional doctrine
  • serves as an accessible and interesting way to learn constitutional issues
  • enlivens class discussion and debate

When you review the many casebooks available for constitutional law, be sure to give careful consideration to this brand-new offering from an expert team of authors who understand the needs and preferences of instructors.
