CJ3400 - Constitutional Law - 4.5 Credits
This course introduces students to ever changing laws that are applied to the Constitution. Through critical analysis of Supreme Court rulings students will find that constitutional law involves the application of human values that are constantly changing, thus the laws change with them. In addition we'll look at the politics that often play a part in who sits on the bench of the United States' Supreme Court and other Courts around the country as well as the laws that are established as a result of those appointments. Some of the Constitutional Amendments such as the First and the Fourteenth Amendments that are the basis of some of the more "controversial" laws are analyzed in greater detail and students will examine how they apply to certain areas such as religion and discrimination.
