View or download the free 2014 Online Supplement for this product.In attempting to come closer to that elusive goal, this latest edition features several significant changes. First, it provides, at appropriate points, concise statements of the frameworks of analysis developed by the Court to resolve constitutional claims. Providing these analytical frameworks is designed to provide a jumping-off point for students to consider the more difficult issues that lurk behind those rules.

Second, this edition has attempted to highlight areas of the law that are often under-studied in a basic constitutional law class, such as immigration, naturalization and citizenship issues.

Third, this edition aims to prepare students for practice. The process of making constitutional "law" is more than the process by which the Supreme Court writes an opinion stating broad principles. The process happens every day, in small decisions made in courthouses, city halls and police stations across the nation. The accompanying Teacher’s Manual explains the authors’ conception of the materials and offers a detailed analysis of the key cases.

Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here.


This book also is available in a heavily discounted, three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8 ½ x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
