Details:

This course offers an intensive look at the 14th Amendment. The goal is both to teach students in depth about the 14th Amendment--particularly its equal protection and due process clauses and the extensive doctrine about the same--and to use this in-depth study as an introduction to concepts and interpretive methods that relate to constitutional rights analysis more generally. Among other things, the course covers the application of Bill of Rights provisions to the states through the 14th Amendment, economic due process rights, non-economic due process rights, affirmative action, race-based discrimination, gender-based discrimination, and the state action doctrine.
