Comparative Constitutional Law

Law 342



Writing Experience (WE)



This course explores constitutional law from different parts of the world. The course will start by examining the goals, methods, and practical relevance of comparative constitutional analysis. We will then turn to a comparative analysis of constitutional structures, including differing approaches to the separation of powers and judicial review. The remainder of the course will examine comparative perspectives on constitutional protections of human rights. (NOTE: Students may take this course for either WE or RWE credit. Students who choose to take the course for RWE will complete a long research paper. Students who take the course for WE credit will complete two shorter assignments.)
