Thread: [New Course] American Constitutional Law For Beginners - Interest Check

    Everyone who is interested should go ahead and apply to the student usergroup via the groups tab in your account page. Once Hader approve everything we will get started. For those who have free time right now, you can go ahead and start looking at our first case: Marbury v. Madison. This is a landmark decision from 1803 which established the doctrine of judicial review. Oyez is a great website to look at all the cases we will be discussing because it offers the full text of the case, a summary, and the syllabus all in one place. I highly recommend reading the full case and then the summary, but reading the summary will be good enough if you are crunched for time.

    I have decided that participation in one Seminar will be a requirement from graduation from the course. At this point I plan on having three (dates/times heavily tbd) which will be recorded. I plan each one to last just one hour which will be meant to mimic a typical law school class. As such, please include your skype username here, unless I can get discord working in which case we will use that.

    This makes the course requirements for graduation as follows, for those interested in the official designation:

    (1) One Seminar participation, though everyone is encouraged to participate in all of them
    (1) One case brief
    Participation in all unit discussions (at least three posts, unless you have extenuating circumstances)

    Dates are heavily TBD and will be decided on the basis of providing the maximum amount of flexibility to the largest number of people.

    Hey Pontifex,

    I just sent the group request to Hader and hopefully should be enrolled soon! In the meantime I'll have a look at the material you've posted for the first case, and also peruse the syllabus a bit and see which of the left-over topics I'd like to present.

    I am still in. I have actually been thinking about this recently, and lamenting that it just drifted away. So yeah. Let's make it happen. But I think going forward it will be important that participants be genuinely interested in the course, and not have some passing motivation related to current events that then goes away in three weeks.

    Anyone who doesn't do the reading will be beaten in front of the whole class. If we can agree to this, then I'll put together a modified timeline. Also, should probably give people more time or streamline things a bit.

    I'm not sure if more time is really necessary. Last time this course was tried, it didn't seem an issue of people not being able to get things together quick enough, but rather them just bumming away like punks. I don't know for sure though. Maybe field some potential timelines, and see what everyone thinks.

    Easiest solution is to re-apply for "deadlines" already in place. These are not particular dates, not like a range for when discussion will occur.
