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.

This innovative casebook breaks course content up into teachable "class-sized" chunks and replaces the typical dense note material found in other casebooks with more of the classic cases presented at greater length with background readings from varied sources. Emphasizing the evolution of constitutional law from the Founding to today, Constitutional Law: Cases in Context, employs a transparent and straightforward organization that is not only easy for students to grasp, but easy for professors to tailor and rearrange to suit various teaching preferences. This unique casebook is designed to be user-friendly for teacher and student alike: primary emphasis is placed on how Constitutional Law has developed rather than on doctrinal details, providing an accessible and engaging way to consider first principles and method, especially for those students without a basic familiarity with constitutional history to convey the context in which they were decided, the landmark "classic cases" that provide the basic vocabulary of Constitutional Law are presented chronologically, rather than doctrine-by-doctrine to encourage students on their own to discern and begin to internalize the significance of each key court decision presenting an overall constitutional narrative is more efficient and less confusing than separately tracing the history of each doctrine, while allowing ample time to cover contemporary issues. both classic and modern cases are generously edited to allow the Justices themselves, rather than the casebook editor, to debate the development of constitutional law in their own words cases, especially the early ones, are judiciously supplemented with other materials to provide further context that draws students into the subject. Rival interpretations of the Constitution by founders, Presidents, and other critics of the Court's decisions are better represented here than in many other casebooks "Study Guide Questions" before each case help students focus attention on salient issues at 1,408 pages, with textual introductions that are brief and factual and with fewer dense note materials, this casebook is more transparent for professor and student alike. Complementing the casebook: an annual supplement for the casebook, Recent Developments in Constitutional Law, will replace cases that occur later in the materials leaving the early parts of the course more stable from year to year and from future edition to edition an in-depth Teacher's Manual, explaining how to use the book in various common course configurations This novel but remarkably comfortable casebook offers an accessible and engaging way to teach and learn Constitutional Law. If you are looking for a shorter Constitutional Law casebook with fewer dense notes, be sure to examine Constitutional Law: Cases in Context before you teach your next course.

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 focuses on key areas of constitutional law and 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. New to the Second Edition: Updated with key First Amendment cases through the 2017–2018 Supreme Court term, including Expressions Hair Design v. Schneiderman and Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission Includes commentary on controversial cases from the 2017–2018 Supreme Court term, including Trump v. Hawaii Existing cases have been further edited to preserve the scope of the book while reducing its size Additional supplemental cases are added to the online Professor Resources to allow professors to add coverage of most areas of constitutional law Professors and students will benefit from: Narrower 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, and Lochner v. New York, to name a few, are also included) Coverage that focuses on the issues most relevant to the types of practice students 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 to help students 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 Each chapter includes one or more Problems to provide students opportunities to apply the doctrines learned Each chapter includes 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
