POL414: Civil Liberties

3 Credit(s)
Fulfills Core Requirement in Social Sciences
We will carefully study many important U.S. Supreme Court constitutional law cases that describe and develop our understanding of our constitutional rights and liberties–our freedom of religion, speech and press, the right of privacy, rights of the criminally accused, as well as rights concerning race, sex, and voting.  We will supplement our study of these cases with an examination of some Founding Era documents that shed light on the original understanding of our rights and liberties and how this understanding has developed. Cross-listed with ADJ 414 
Theme: Defining the American Experience
