The second edition of American Constitutional Law and History continues to emphasize fundamental learning goals for first-year law students: First, they learn entrenched constitutional law doctrines, as well as the unstable nature of much of constitutional law. Second, students learn the six recurring approaches justifying the exercise of judicial review. Third, students are provided frameworks explaining how constitutional law has changed in American history, and how that history affects the present Court’s understanding of the Constitution. Finally, students learn how to name and use regularly recurring forms of legal argument. The second edition includes more figures, decision trees, timelines, and tables, all to assist students in better understanding constitutional law.
