This groundbreaking casebook is ideal for introductory Constitutional Law courses of 3-5 units that teach both structure and rights. Its novel approach presents constitutional law as a coherent system, not as isolated doctrines in silos. The book integrates subjects ordinarily taught in Con Law I and II; it integrates historical and doctrinal approaches; it integrates features of a casebook and a study guide; and it presents each case as an integrated whole, so that students learn relationships among doctrines while studying the details of each. Its tone is accessible, while its structure allows for sophisticated classroom discussion. The Second Edition goes beyond merely incorporating significant cases decided after the First Edition was published in 2015. New historical material and biographical profiles have been added, even for pre-existing cases; some chapters have been reorganized; and some text has been revised to anticipate student questions that commonly arise. The features of the casebook that made it a student favorite are, of course, retained. (Students in Prof. Caplan's classes were asked, in an anonymous survey distributed by proctors at the end of the semester, how the First Edition compared to casebooks used in other classes. 37% said the book was "better" than casebooks they used in other classes, and 45% said the book was "a lot better.")

This casebook is designed to reflect more accurately the way that Constitutional Law is generally taught in contemporary law schools. Most schools no longer attempt to offer a comprehensive survey course; rather, they offer an introduction to the subject that omits topics like the First Amendment and frequently focuses on issues of constitutional structure. The basic idea of this book is to conform the casebook more closely to the subjects actually covered in most introductory constitutional law courses. The book also tries to capture the best of both topical and historical arrangements. This book makes no attempt at comprehensive coverage. It combines a historical approach in the first half of the book with a very thorough doctrinal treatment of structural questions in the second. The book departs from most other casebooks in the field by offering longer cuts of fewer key cases, rather than trying to treat every significant case. The underlying theory is that the justices are considerably less cryptic when one includes a greater proportion of their explanations, and that the extra reading load is more than offset by the decrease in confusion. This book is divided into two principal parts. The first offers a general survey of judicial review, arranged as a history of the U.S. Supreme Court from Marbury to Bush v. Gore. This history accomplishes several goals: It presents an overall picture of the institution of judicial review as it has evolved over our history; it introduces the basics of a number of rights issues (e.g., equal protection and race, due process and privacy) not covered elsewhere in the course; and it exposes students to different theoretical approaches to constitutional interpretation. The second half of the book presents an in-depth doctrinal study of federalism and separation of powers,

The book proposes a fundamentally new way of teaching contract law: it simultaneously presents a more systematic and coherent elaboration of contract doctrine than other contacts casebooks and develops a more rigorous interdisciplinary approach to thinking about law generally. The aim of the book is to present a doctrinally integrated, interdisciplinary approach to contract law in a rigorous, open, and systematic fashion. This casebook replaces the conventional approach with an effort to elaborate the doctrinal structure of contract law in an orderly way and, at the same time, to introduce students in a systematic way to a wide range of methods of legal analysis. The materials in the book therefore present a holistic account of contract law, in which doctrines from various areas of the law are linked together, and the relations among them explained. The explanations sound both in traditional doctrinal legal analysis and in ideas taken from economics, sociology, and philosophy.

Constitutional Law: Cases, Approaches, and Applications is a succinct and careful presentation of canonical constitutional law cases and important constitutional law statements from the political branches. Additionally, its annual supplement includes material based on recent appellate cases applying Supreme Court constitutional doctrine. Its main features include: relatively longer excerpts of relatively fewer cases, carefully edited to preserve citations to relevant precedent. This feature allows professors to engage students about appropriate use of precedent. The book also includes note material that connects the featured cases, thus providing the students with a comprehensive explanation of the law in a manageable number of pages. Thematic, as well as topical, organization, which allows professors to explore particular jurisprudential approaches. For example, much of the equal protection material is organized around the Court¿s use, and eventual abandonment, of suspect class analysis. An annual supplement that, in addition to excerpting the Supreme Court¿s most recent constitutional law opinions, also features appellate cases applying the Court¿s constitutional law doctrines, in the form of excerpts, notes, or problems. This feature helps students understand how the Court¿s often-vague statements of constitutional law are actually applied. It also teaches the fundamental (but often-unlearned) reality that practicing lawyers need to know not just what the Supreme Court has said about a particular issue, but how the relevant lower court jurisdiction has understood that statement. Moreover, providing these cases as problems allows students to work through the implications of a Supreme Court decision in a concrete, real-life context.
