Unlike other casebooks that typically seek to tackle the entirety of Constitutional Law and are organized from the perspective of the constitutional scholar—a top-down approach that encompasses (and even emphasizes) theoretical and philosophical perspectives and debates—Modern Constitutional Law: Cases, Problems and Practice is organized from the ground-up: rather than assuming students will one day be making constitutional arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court (or teaching Constitutional Law), this book assumes students will more likely be making constitutional arguments before a state or federal trial court. And so it focuses on those areas of Constitutional Law that are likely to be relevant to the practice areas in which most law students will work after law school—small or solo firms that count individuals and small businesses as their clientele, or the offices of state agencies, district attorneys or public defenders. These attorneys by and large are not addressing issues regarding, say, the theoretical underpinnings of judicial review; rather, they are seeking, for example, to challenge on due process grounds procedures put in place by the local school board, or on equal protection grounds a regulatory scheme that appears to single out a readily identifiable class of citizens for differential treatment. Key Features: • Narrower in scope than other casebooks, the book is more manageable for 3- and 4- credit courses • A focus on doctrine rather than theory • Emphasis on modern and contemporary cases rather than historical ones (although landmark cases, such as McCulloch v. Maryland, The Prize Cases, Lochner v. New York, Plessey v. Ferguson, to name a few, are also included) • Coverage focused on the issues most relevant to the types of practice they will enter upon graduation, such as due process, equal protection, and First Amendment • Inclusion of cases from the lower federal and state courts, courts in which most students are most likely to one day find themselves litigating constitutional issues • Inclusion of a generous number of case excerpts are generous, which helps students to develop their ability to read legal texts closely and extract useful information, rather than, like many casebooks, relying on numerous Notes to cover the jurisprudence in a particular area • Most chapters include at least one Problem to provide students an opportunity to apply the doctrines learned • Each chapter contains one or more “Practice Perspectives” that present the facts, background and resolution of actual constitutional law cases, challenging students to explain the results based on what they have learned in the chapter • Extremely up-to-date, incorporating cases from the 2015-16 Supreme Court term, including Fisher v. University of Texas (Fisher II) and Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellersted

Constitutional Law: Cases in Context, Third Edition places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed since the Founding, its key foundational principles, and recurring debates.

Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Innovative study guide questions presented before each case help students focus on the salient issues, challenging them to consider the court’s opinions from various perspectives, and suggesting comparisons or connections with other cases.

A highly accessible and engaging structure that examines the competing narratives that pervade the development of American constitutional law since the founding. Related cases are grouped together into “assignments” and make for a reasonable amount of reading for each topic. A wealth of photographs, maps, and primary documents to bring the cases to life.
