Overview

A concise, pedagogically rich study guide, Inside Constitutional Law: What Matters and Why, emphasizes the essential components of the law — how they fit together and why — to give your students the help that some of them will need to benefit from their casebook reading and classroom experience.

A powerful study guide with the full panoply of pedagogical tools:

  • clear explanations of key terms, concepts, relationships, and processes
  • a consistent focus on what matters and why — through introductions and summaries
  • a rich and dynamic pedagogy that includes:
    • overviews — what is important in this chapter to an understanding of constitutional law
    • key terms — highlighted and defined in context
      • cross-references to key terms
    • clear signposting — generous use of heading levels and visual aids
    • FAQs — Frequently Asked Questions addressing matters of ambiguity
    • Sidebars — containing study tips, hypos, cites to authorities, and marginalia
    • graphics — charts, graphs, figures, and art
    • connections — a concluding section at the end of every chapter that connects the material covered to other chapters in the book, the field at large, and legal practice
  • uncluttered and attractive 2-color page design

From the publishers of the highly respected Examples and Explanations series, the new Inside series, featuring outstanding educators and a consistently rich pedagogical design, will enable many students to approach their course work and class discussion with a firm grasp on subjects that had previously seemed unreachable.
