Course Description:
This course seeks to offer a systematic overview of State constitutional law, to amend the imbalance in constitutional studies, which focuses on the U.S. Constitution. The course will highlight the manner in which State constitutions express democratic self-governance, serve as foundational material in American constitutionalism, and are indispensable in structuring our Federal system. This neglected area of constitutional study is particularly vital now, given the modern revitalization of State constitutional law. Special attention will be given to individual liberties under State constitutions and interpretative issues generally.
