Constitutional Law: Governmental Powers and Individual Freedoms: Principles and Practice, 4th edition

  • Dr Daniel E. Hall
  • John Feldmeier


Constitutional Law: Governmental Powers and Individual Freedoms introduces the core principles, cases, and doctrines surrounding constitutional law. Flexible in design, it can be used in a study of governmental powers and civil liberties, individually or together. By examining real cases and contemporary legal scenarios, the text makes the constitution and constitutional law relevant rather than theoretical. The 4th edition includes new cases and rulings addressing civil liberties and criminal procedure, as well as new analysis of constitutional issues raised by state and federal responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and other significant events.
