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.

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.

Unlike other casebooks that typically seek to tackle the entirety of Constitutional Law and are organized from the perspective of the constitutional scholar—a top-down approach that encompasses (and even emphasizes) theoretical and philosophical perspectives and debates—Modern Constitutional Law: Cases, Problems and Practice is organized from the ground-up: rather than assuming students will one day be making constitutional arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court (or teaching Constitutional Law), 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 that count individuals and small businesses as their clientele, or the offices of state agencies, district attorneys or public defenders. These attorneys by and large are not addressing issues regarding, say, the theoretical underpinnings of judicial review; rather, they are seeking, for example, to challenge on due process grounds procedures put in place by the local school board, or on equal protection grounds a regulatory scheme that appears to single out a readily identifiable class of citizens for differential treatment. Key Features: • Narrower in scope than other casebooks, the book is more manageable for 3- and 4- credit courses • A focus on doctrine rather than theory • Emphasis on modern and contemporary cases rather than historical ones (although landmark cases, such as McCulloch v. Maryland, The Prize Cases, Lochner v. New York, Plessey v. 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, rather than, like many casebooks, relying on numerous Notes to cover the jurisprudence in a particular area • 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, challenging students to explain the results based on what they have learned in the chapter • Extremely up-to-date, incorporating cases from the 2015-16 Supreme Court term, including Fisher v. University of Texas (Fisher II) and Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellersted

Elder Law in Context integrates cases, statutory materials, forms, policy and ethics to provide a well-rounded and comprehensive study of Elder Law. The book demonstrates that the law of any given practice area in reality isn't made up of discrete doctrinal areas but rather consists of interrelated and overlapping areas, and covers legal doctrine in contracts, agency, ethics, torts, constitutional law, administrative law, public law, criminal law and more, as they relate to Elder Law. This approach provides both an excellent and practical vehicle for learning Elder Law, but, by reviewing core doctrine from earlier and more foundational law school courses, it helps to prepare upper level students for the bar exam. The book provides ample opportunities for students to apply lessons, through the various problems and exercises throughout.

Religion and the Constitution, Third Edition, written by a team of well-known Constitutional Law scholars, thoughtfully examines the relationship between government and religion within the framework of the U.S. Constitution. This classroom-tested casebook is suitable for courses in Religious Liberty, Religion and the Constitution, or Religious Institutions and the Law. The Third Edition has been completely updated with discussions of recent important cases and includes expanded discussion of key topic areas. Professors McConnell, Garvey, and Berg bring years of experience and insight to teaching students about Religion and the Constitution: Broad recurring themes place current debate in context: Free exercise of religion in the face of government regulation Government financial assistance to religious institutions The role of religion in government institutions, such as schools Notes and questions connect constitutional and religious history with current constitutional issues. The combination of notes and problems allows both depth of understanding and application of knowledge to new issues. The interrelation between free exercise and establishment clauses is examined and thoroughly explained. Historical background materials judiciously integrated with current constitutional issues provide students with the context that facilitates deeper understanding. Lightly edited cases promote in-depth case analysis. New to the Third Edition: Up-to-date coverage of new decisions. Expanded discussion of standing in both funding and symbols cases (including Hein and Buono). Expanded discussion of freedom of religious association (including CLS v. Martinez). Additional references to international and comparative materials.
