A unique multidisciplinary approach characterizes the leading Constitutional Law. A variety of critical and social perspectives draw on political theory, philosophy, sociology, ethics, history, and economics to give a contemporary look at constitutional law within its traditional doctrinal structure. A mixture of lightly and more heavily edited cases allows close analysis while providing a broad array of important opinions and pivotal cases. Extensive material summarizes the state of the law and its development. Constitutional Law"ideal for two-semester courses" follows a logical two-part organization, beginning with the balance of powers among the Supreme Court and local, state, and federal governments and moving to the rights and powers of individuals. The excellent coverage of First Amendment law is clear and concise, and a distinct annual supplement separates First Amendment materials from the rest for ease of research. The Seventh Edition presents new material on originalism and the right to bear arms; incorporation and the Second Amendment; and Libya and the War Powers Resolution. Full, analytic treatment of the Supreme Court's decisions in the Affordable Care Act is presented. Coverage of the preemption doctrine is expanded. A new discussion of the Religion Clauses' treatment considers church autonomy in light of Hosanna-Tabor. The text on freedom of expression has been revised to incorporate new cases such as Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (on campaign finance regulation), Snyder v. Phelps (on intentional infliction of emotional distress), Brown v. Entertainment Merchants' Ass'n (on violent video games), FCC v. Fox Television Stations (on expletives in broadcasting), and United States v. Alvarez (on criminal liability for lying about receiving medals of honor.) New material on privacy and the Internet brings the Seventh Edition completely up to date.

Shorter than most Constitutional Law casebooks, American Constitutional Law: Powers and Liberties, 5E provides a broad survey of the field without overwhelming students. The basics of constitutional theory are presented without getting mired in highly theoretical discussions and cases are tightly edited to focus on the most important aspects with additional cases on select topics condensed into narrative summaries. The book focuses on cases and expository text rather than extensive academic commentary, and introductory text provides direction to students as they read and analyze the materials that follow. Additionally, challenging hypotheticals are provided throughout the text for use as student self-assessments or to launch stimulating class discussions. This highly teachable book can be used for a one- or two-semester course and is easily adaptable to suit each professor s preferences.

Constitutional Law: Cases in Context, Third Edition places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed since the Founding, its key foundational principles, and recurring debates. By providing both cases and context, it conveys the competing narratives that all lawyers ought to know and all constitutional practitioners need to know. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to one-semester courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Innovative study guide questions presented before each case help students focus on the salient issues, challenging them to consider the court’s opinions from various perspectives, and suggesting comparisons or connections with other cases. Key Benefits: Revised doctrinal areas with newer cases. Updated background contextual material to reflect current scholarship. A highly accessible and engaging structure that examines the competing narratives that pervade the development of American constitutional law since the founding. Related cases are grouped together into “assignments” and make for a reasonable amount of reading for each topic. A wealth of photographs, maps, and primary documents to bring the cases to life.

CasebookConnect offers you what you need most to be successful in your law school classes - portability, meaningful feedback, and greater efficiency. This looseleaf version of the Connected Casebook does not come with a binder. Unlike other casebooks that typically seek to tackle the entirety of Constitutional Law--a top-down approach that encompasses theoretical and philosophical perspectives and debates--Modern Constitutional Law: Cases, Problems and Practiceis organized from the ground-up: rather than assuming students will one day be making constitutional arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court, this book assumes students will more likely be making constitutional arguments before a state or federal trial court. And so it focuses on those areas of Constitutional Law that are likely to be relevant to the practice areas in which most law students will work after law school--small or solo firms, or the offices of state agencies, district attorneys or public defenders. Key Features: A focus on doctrine rather than theory Emphasis on modern and contemporary cases rather than historical ones (although landmark cases, such asMcCulloch v. Maryland, The Prize Cases, Lochnerv. New York, Plesseyv. Ferguson, to name a few, are also included) Coverage focused on the issues most relevant to the types of practice they will enter upon graduation, such as due process, equal protection, and First Amendment Inclusion of cases from the lower federal and state courts, courts in which most students are most likely to one day find themselves litigating constitutional issues Inclusion of a generous number of case excerpts are generous, which helps students to develop their ability to read legal texts closely and extract useful information Most chapters include at least one Problem to provide students an opportunity to apply the doctrines learned Each chapter contains one or more "Practice Perspectives" that present the facts, background and resolution of actual constitutional law cases Extremely up-to-date, incorporating cases from the 2015-16 Supreme Court term, includingFisher v.
