Course Description:
This course will examine the most important and interesting provisions of Arizona’s Constitution and the Arizona Supreme Court’s decisions interpreting those provisions. Emphasis will be on provisions that are different, in either their text or judicial interpretation, from those found in the U.S. Constitution. Specific topics will include the initiative and referendum processes; recall of elected officials; individual rights that are similar to rights found in the U.S. Constitution (e.g., free speech, equal protection, and the right to bear arms); and individual rights that are not found in the U.S. Constitution (e.g., victims’ rights and the right to recover for personal injury). Substantial attention will be given to current issues and to the characteristics of the Arizona Supreme Court, as currently constituted.
