We developed this multimedia platform to innovate how constitutional law is studied. First, An Introduction to Constitutional Law will teach you the narrative of constitutional law as it has developed over the past two centuries. All students — even those unfamiliar with American history — will learn the essential background information to grasp how this body of law has come to be what it is today. Second, the online video library will bring to life the 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know. To make the content more engaging, we’ve embedded photographs, maps, and even audio from the Supreme Court.
We’ve made the book and videos accessible for all levels of study: law school, college, high school, home school, and independent study. Students can read and watch these materials before class to prepare for lectures. Or students can utilize the platform after class to fill in any gaps in their notes. And most likely, come exam time, students can binge-watch the entire canon of constitutional law in less than 12 hours.
We hope you enjoy using An Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know as much as we enjoyed preparing it.
