|LAW 648F - Constitutional Law Seminar:Supreme Court & Constitutional Theory|
This seminar is for a maximum of twelve students. The seminar will meet for the first four weeks of the semester to discuss the history of the Supreme Court and the various “mainstream” theories of Constitutional interpretation.
Students will choose a topic (in consultation with the Professor) during the first two weeks.
The seminar will not meet from week five through week ten. During that time each student will turn in a first draft and attend an editing conference with the Professor. Second drafts will be due on Wednesday of week nine.
Second drafts will be copied and distributed to all members of the seminar. The remainder of the seminar meetings will be led by students, each presenting and leading a one hour discussion of the student’s paper. The paper presentation meetings of the seminar will be during the 6:00 to 8:00 time slots on weeks eleven through fourteen. If there are twelve students in the seminar, we will use two Saturday mornings during weeks eleven through fourteen in order to give each student an opportunity to present and have the draft critiqued by seminar colleagues.
Final drafts, reflecting any changes from the presentation and discussion sessions, will be due at the end of the examination period.
