Protection of Individual Rights Under State Constitutions Seminar

Course Abbreviation: 
SEM 933
Credit Only: N Anon Gr: N

With the perception that the federal judiciary is increasingly hostile to constitutional claims, individuals have turned to state constitutions as an independent source of rights in civil and criminal litigation. This course will explore the unique procedures and methods of state constitutional rights interpretation. In lieu of an examination, persons enrolled in the course will brief questions of state constitutional law in an arena where the United States Constitution fails to afford protection.
