Constitutional Law: Cases, Materials, and Problems

Constitutional Law: Cases, Materials, and Problems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 1,320 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

Book News Annotation:

Weaver (law, U. of Louisville) and his colleagues seek to offer students a more accessible constitutional casebook than traditional ones with either an overload of detailed notes or severely limited number of cases presented. To this end, they present cases as problems with real world or theoretical implications to promote critical thinking about constitutional law issues rather than treat law as simply a deductive process. Modern and landmark U.S. Supreme Court decisions and related cases tackle such fundamental issues as conflicting interpretations of the Constitution by Congress and the President, state-federal government relations, regulation of commerce, due process, freedom of speech, and the exercise of religion. The text includes a table of cases.
