Constitutional Law: Individual Rights, one work from a two-volume set, is a problem-oriented guide to the principle doctrines of constitutional law as covered in the typical course. This straightforward text walks the student through the constitutional provisions that protect individual rights: Takings and Contracts clauses, Due Process, Freedoms of Speech and Religion, and Equal Protection.
Designed to encourage students to think about the larger issues of constitutional law with depth and perception, this clear and informal text: - Utilizes the unique, time-tested E and E pedagogy that combines textual material with well-written and comprehensive examples, explanations, and questions to test students' comprehension of the materials and provide practice in applying legal principles to fact patterns. The questions (in which there are often a variety of issues presented in one fact situation) are similar to those on a law school or bar examination; - Parallels the major casebooks in its organization and will complement any constitutional law casebook; - Explains legal concepts and principles in digestible sections, followed by examples and analyses that illustrate how to apply these concepts and principles in hypothetical situations.
With thoroughly updated text and examples and explanations, the Fifth Edition also incorporates important Supreme Court cases, including: - District of Columbia v. Heller, on the right to bear arms; - Gonzales v. Carhart, on regulation of abortion; - Kennedy v. Louisiana, on the death penalty as cruel and unusual punishment; - Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1, on benign race discrimination; - Exxon Shipping v. Baker, on due process limits on punitive damages; and many others.
