Show synopsis This law school casebook is concise, rigorous, and yet accessible to students. It contains approximately 100 primary cases, including a greater proportion of recent Supreme Court decisions than other casebooks. The notes provide context, and realistic problems facilitate application of constitutional law principles and cases. Covering structural constitutional law (judicial power, distribution of powers, Congress' powers, federalism, and judicial protection of interstate commerce) and the reach of the Fourteenth Amendment (citizenship, privileges and immunities, due process, equal protection, and state action), this casebook incorporates entertaining elements and references contemporary controversies. Tight editing to achieve "page neutrality," subtle revisions, and updates including creative incorporation of the health care decision make this popular casebook even better than the last.
