The text introduces readers to the core principles, cases, and doctrines surrounding the major issues of constitutional law, with an emphasis on governmental powers and civil liberties. Considering real-world cases and contemporary legal scenarios, along with ample visual aids, the text brings the constitution alive, making constitutional law seem relevant rather than remote and theoretical.
