|Constitutional Law: Spring 2016
The text for Constitutional law is Sulllivan and Feldman, Constitutional Law, 18th edition, 2013, Foundation Press.
Week of Jan. 18
(note the Monday class is rescheduled for Friday). The assignments for the first week of classes is to read the constitution, particularly the original text, in the casebook at lxv, as well as Marbury v. Madison, pp 1 - 9.
Pay particular attention when reading Marbury to the procedural context of the case, and carefully read fn. 1 on page 5.
Week of Jan 25
For the second week of classes: the first exercise I expect in class is after defining the holding of Marbury v. Madison, then we will examine the presidential statements on pages 24 – 27. Do any conflict with the actual holding of Marbury?
For the week, pp. 10-33
