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 Practice is 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 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
  • 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, including Fisher v. University of Texas (Fisher II) and Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellersted
