This casebook is mostly traditional in approach. It begins with judicial review, deals next with legislative and executive powers, and contains coverage of individual rights in the latter half. The landmark cases, from Marbury v. Madison to Brown v. Board of Education to Bush v. Gore and beyond, are present. Though traditional in approach, Cases and Materials on Constitutional Law includes many unique features to create an accessible yet stimulating learning experience for the student of Constitutional Law. Distinct features of this casebook include:
The Sixth Edition has the following new features:
Coverage of the Supreme Court's decisions through 2013.
• Expanded coverage of developing areas, such as Free Speech (United States v. Stevens), Gay Rights (United States v. Windsor), Congressional Powers (Sebelius and Shelby County) and our Chapter on Second Amendment Rights.
• Expanded and revised Notes.
• Generally, maintained traditional structure and concise presentation format. (This is a "readable" book for students.)
• Expanded and revised Problems, often based on real cases.
• Revised Appendices (a popular feature of the casebook since the first edition).
• The continued inclusion of "practice" insights and suggestions for litigation and settlement of constitutional cases.
