Constitutional Law introduces the core principles, cases and doctrines of constitutional law. Flexible in design, it can be used in a study of governmental powers, civil liberties or both. By examining real cases and contemporary legal scenarios, the text makes constitutional law relevant rather than theoretical.

Features in each chapter build your creative and critical analysis skills. You’ll consider the constitutional questions courts might soon face and how constitutional law impacts all areas of government. At the end of each chapter, you’ll practice completing real legal assignments.

The 4th Edition includes new cases and rulings addressing civil liberties and criminal procedure. It also adds new analysis of constitutional issues raised by state and federal responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
