Leading Cases in Constitutional Law, A Compact Casebook for a Short Course / Edition 2016 available in Paperback
An annually-revised paperback designed for a single-semester course on constitutional law, this book is roughly half the length of many hardcover casebooks. The six renowned authors, now including Michael Dorf and Frederick Schauer, are co-editors of a long-time favorite teaching book, the much larger Constitutional Law: Cases, Comments & Questions, 12th edition. "Leading Cases," which is a stripped-down version of that book, contains "the essentials" for teaching a basic course in constitutional law. Because the organization of the compact book parallels that of the much lengthier Choper - Fallon - Kamisar - Shiffrin - Dorf - Schauer casebook, which contains extensive Notes & Questions, the latter can serve as a "resource" book for instructors teaching from the paperback. Subsequent editions of “Leading Cases” will continue to be published every summer for classroom use in the fall and will include all the significant cases handed down during the most recent Supreme Court Term.
