Designed for professors that teach from major Supreme Court cases, the eighth edition of Constitutional Law: Structure and Rights in Our Federal System includes the high-profile decisions of the Court's 2022-2023 term while reducing the overall length of the book significantly. The result is an eminently teachable casebook that provides excellent coverage for the traditional 1L course on constitutional law. Traditional in scope, with full coverage of both the structure of government issues and individual rights, Constitutional Law: Structure and Rights in Our Federal System emphasizes cutting-edge controversies by presenting problems that help synthesize the cases on gun control, abortion, and race and gender discrimination, among others.
The new edition makes heavy use of contemporary constitutional conflicts to present in a vivid manner the cases and notes traditionally covered in comprehensive constitutional law courses, including case studies on issues such as gun control, student loan waivers, problems in the special counsel investigations of a future president, the Court's resolution of which branch controls recognition of Jerusalem in providing passports, and controversies surrounding the Affordable Care Act.
