This seminar will examine a variety of current issues in constitutional law and the role of the Supreme Court in resolving them. The issues considered will range widely among those that come before the Court; these will probably include questions involving the First Amendment, the due process and equal protection clauses, and the powers of Congress, as well as some issues of criminal law and procedure. Some consideration will be given to decisionmaking processes within the Supreme Court and to the evolution of constitutional doctrines in the lower courts.
