Constitutional Law Description

Relied on by students, professors, and practitioners, Erwin Chemerinsky's popular treatise, Constitutional Law: Principles and Policies, Fourth Edition, clearly states the law and identifies the underlying policy issues in each area of constitutional law.

The characteristics that make this treatise so highly valued include:

  • Thorough coverage of all areas of constitutional law, suitable for both beginning and advanced courses.
  • Issues are presented clearly and with a neutral approach that examines all sides in constitutional law issues.
  • Discussion not only of doctrines but of the underlying policy issues of the law.
  • Flexible organization: the chapters can be used separately in any order.

Updated throughout, the Fourth Edition:

  • Focuses particularly on developments since the publication of the third edition, including issues involving standing, congressional power, presidential power and the war on terror, preemption, school desegregation, abortion rights and voting rights, and First Amendment issues concerning speech and religion.
