Constitutional Law provides an overview of this important area of law, with a focus on four key areas: federalism (Lopez, NY v. U.S., term limits, and Seminole Tribe), equal protection (affirmative action and voting rights), free speech (indecent speech on the Internet, tobacco advertising and campaign money), and religion (Religious Freedom Restoration Act and debates over the meaning of religious liberty). Highlights of the new edition include new materials on the meaning of Marbury at its bicentennial; significantly expanded materials on executive power, military tribunals, and separation of powers in the post-September 11 war on terrorism; full analysis of the United States Supreme Court's landmark decision in the gay privacy case, Lawrence v. Texas; extended treatment of the Supreme Court's recent cases on race preferences in admissions at the University of Michigan; the Court's latest word on Internet porn and campaign finance restrictions; and analysis of the Court's recent decisions on the use of education vouchers at religious schools.
