Democratic Constitutionalism (20373). 2 or 3 units. The course will explore the relationship between judicial review and constitutional interpretation outside the courts. Over the semester we will address how those in Congress and the Executive Branch, as well as citizens in political parties and social movements, make claims on the Constitution. Using case histories involving gun rights, abortion, same-sex marriage, executive power, religion, poverty and health care, we will examine the roles that political mobilization and conflict play in the development of constitutional meaning inside and outside of courts. Enrollment limited. Permission of the instructors required. Self-scheduled examination (2 units) or, with approval, paper option (3 units). R.C. Post and R. Siegel.
