"Course No. 2017"--Container.
Title from container.
The politics of Constitutional Law.
Lecturer: Professor Eric Berger.
"Americans wage many of today's fiercest policy debates and culture wars as battles over constitutional meaning. Constitutional law implicates everything from abortion to same-sex marriage to the scope of presidential power in times of war. Quite simply, many of the most important issues of the day are ultimately questions of constitutional interpretation, and the Constitution rarely answers these questions clearly. ... Questions like these lie at the heart of Law School for Everyone: Constitutional Law. In 12 lectures, you'll get the same accessible, well-rounded, and balanced introduction to constitutional law as Professor Berger's own law students. You'll examine pivotal Supreme Court cases to learn how interpreting the Constitution has radically affected American society. You'll consider the Supreme Court's role in deciding--and sometimes avoiding--questions of constitutionality. And you'll investigate how changes in public opinion can influence how the Supreme Court interprets the Constitution. While the open-ended nature of the Constitution's language makes constitutional law often uncertain, you'll come away from this course with a better understanding of its many nuances and complexities, as well as its profound importance for the future of the United States. ... Enriched by Professor Berger's experience clerking on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, his eye-opening scholarship on issues of constitutional law, and his award-winning work as a professor of constitutional law and constitutional history at the University of Nebraska, Law School for Everyone: Constitutional Law is a unique look into how we think about and understand the U.S. Constitution. It is both an accessible legal education and a powerful reminder of just how far-reaching constitutional issues can be."--Publisher's website.
