View or download the free 2014 Online Supplement for this product.In attempting to come closer to that elusive goal, the Fourth Edition features severalsignificant changes. First, it provides, at appropriate points, concise statements of theframeworks of analysis developed by the Court to resolve constitutional claims. Providing these analyticalframeworks is designed to provide a jumping-off point for students to consider the moredifficult issues that lurk behind those rules.
Second, the Fourth Edition has attempted to highlight areas of the law that are oftenunder-studied in a basic constitutional law class, such as immigration, naturalization and citizenship issues.
Third, the Fourth 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. Theprocess happens every day, in small decisions made in courthouses, city halls and policestations across the nation.
The accompanying Teachers 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.
