Constitutional law deals with the fundamental principles by which government exercises its authority. This area of law focuses on what the Constitution says, what specific laws mean, and what limitations exist. This introductory course will cover the development of the United States Constitutional Law by analyzing how the case law has developed through our history, how the social and political landscape has evolved, and how those interact and influence each other. Students will also analyze how legal and historical precedent influences current debates on the freedoms of speech, press, and religion; rights to vote, assemble, bear arms, due process, privacy; protection from unreasonable searches and seizures. Students will learn how to analyze a constitutional question; delineate the relationships between the branches of government; and explore the individual rights, liberties and protections enshrined in the Constitution.
