Course Description

The course explores structural constitutional law and introduces some of the constitutional limits on government power that protect individual rights. The former includes discussions of judicial power, executive power, congressional powers and the federalism balance between state and national sovereigns. The latter includes an introduction to individual rights under the Bill of Rights and the due process clause of the 14th Amendment. We will discuss in particular the rise and fall of economic substantive due process, and the controversial area of unenumerated rights, e.g. family autonomy, sexual autonomy, reproductive autonomy, and medical decision making autonomy.
