Product Description

This State Constitutional Law: The Modern Experience case book addresses the constitutions of the 50 States. It is designed for a survey course, one that does not purport to cover every State’s constitution in detail. Rather, like a traditional contracts, real property or torts textbook, it uses the most interesting state court decisions from around the country to illustrate the astonishing array of state constitutional issues at play in modern American law.

The method of presentation emphasizes the function of state constitutions in our federal system. It sometimes does so by explaining how the U.S. Constitution deals with an issue before discussing how the state constitutions handle it, and it sometimes does so by explaining how the state constitutions contain provisions that have no parallel in the U.S. Constitution. A central theme of State Constitutional Law: The Modern Experience, explored in a variety of areas, is that state constitutions provide a source of rights independent of the Federal Constitution, and state courts frequently construe these provisions to grant more expansive protection for individual rights than the Federal Constitution provides. As the reader will see, the state courts’ expansion of liberty and property rights under their constitutions stems from a variety of factors: differences in the text between the state and federal constitutional provisions, the smaller size of the state courts’ jurisdiction, state constitutional history, unique state traditions and disagreement with the U.S. Supreme Court’s interpretation of similar language.
