SLN #: 72946
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Weinstein-Tull

Course Description:
The Fourteenth Amendment is at the core of the law’s most important and difficult problems: segregation, women’s rights, marriage equality, abortion, the right to privacy, the right to vote, and others. The Amendment, and the rights it confers, has shaped what it means to be American. In this class, we will study the law of the Fourteenth Amendment with an emphasis on equal protection, due process, and enforcement. We will also study the complicated ways in which the Amendment has interacted with evolving social movements, federalism, and states’ rights.
