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.
