Constitutional Adjudication

Law 310



Rigorous Writing Experience (RWE)



In this course, students will argue and decide constitutional cases pending before the United States Supreme Court. Each week, two students argue a case before the rest of the students in the seminar sitting as a simulated Supreme Court. The "Court" will decide the case, and then students will draft and file majority and dissenting opinions, which constitute the course's written work. The course also includes a field trip to the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC, to observe oral arguments and visit with an Associate Justice. 

Builds on other courses in constitutional law.
