796.03 - Advanced Constitutional Law
Professor: Marc Spindelman
Semester: 2011 Autumn
Second Writing Requirement? Yes
Professional Responsibility? No
This is a seminar in U.S. Constitutional theory. What is the “Constitution”? What institution or institutions – or non-institutional actors – are (or should be) charged with its authoritative interpretation? How should they go about the task? Who should have the final say? A range of scholarship on these and related topics will be considered. Particular (and critical) attention will be paid to current notions of – and justifications for – judicial review and supremacy.
