CRIJ 2613 - Constitutional Law


This course examines the principles of constitutional law utilizing case law from United States Supreme Court cases. Also we will examine the federal judicial legal process. Emphasis is on the nature of due process and the rights of the criminal defendant. This course will not deal with the sociological aspects of constitutional law.  We will use two methods of studying constitutional law. The first is the case law method and the second is the textbook method. The case law method is designed to help you remember the principle of law of the case relating to a factual pattern which occurred in the case. The textbook method is the study of the textbook, which is a treatise on constitutional law. The textbook method consists of general rules and conclusions based on court decisions and is therefore the product of inductive reasoning.
