Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know
Featuring co-authors Randy E. Barnett, Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory, Georgetown University Law Center, and Senior Fellow, Cato Institute; and Josh Blackman, Associate Professor of Law, South Texas College of Law Houston, and Adjunct Scholar, Cato Institute; with Hon. Thomas Hardiman, Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit; and David Savage, Supreme Court Correspondent, Los Angeles Times; moderated by Ilya Shapiro, Director, Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute.
An Introduction to Constitutional Law will teach you the narrative of constitutional law as it has developed over the past two centuries. All readers — even those unfamiliar with American history — will learn the essential background for grasping how this body of law has come to be what it is today. The accompanying online video library brings to life the Supreme Court’s 100 most important decisions; the videos are enriched by photographs, maps, and even audio from Supreme Court arguments. More importantly, this multimedia work is accessible to all: students in law school, college, high school, and homeschool, as well as lifelong learners pursuing independent study. Law students can read and watch these materials to prepare for class or use the platform after class to fill in any gaps in their notes. Come exam time, students can binge-watch the entire canon of constitutional law in about 12 hours. Please join us to learn about this innovative project, with comment by a prominent federal judge and a leading Supreme Court reporter.
