Protection of individuals and organizations by the Bill of Rights, the fourteenth amendment, and other provisions of the Constitution. Constitutional Law II covers civil liberties and civil rights and is designed to complete the review of the basic constitutional law materials that was begun in Constitutional Law I. Constitutional Law II is concerned with the principal guarantees of the first and fourteenth amendments, such as freedom of speech, press, and religion, and the Equal Protection Clause and how it applies to discrimination against minorities, women, and "fundamental interests." The areas covered are considered basic to an understanding of American law. The course will also provide needed background for other substantive courses involving individual rights and liberties.
RECOMMENDED: Constitutional Law I (Law 820) is very strongly recommended for transfer students.
