    Due Process and Equal Protection: Advanced Constitutional Law (21145). 3 units. This advanced Constitutional Law course will examine in greater depth the two clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment that have played a central role in many of the most hotly contested legal, political, and social disputes in the United States. This course will briefly examine the early development of the Constitution's liberty guarantee and consider how it has evolved in more recent times in cases involving, among other things, abortion, gay rights, and the right to die. It will likewise examine the development of the Constitution's equal protection guarantee, primarily in cases involving race, sex, and sexual orientation discrimination and issues such as school integration, affirmative action, reproductive rights, and same-sex marriage. As we study these two lines of cases, we will consider how the meaning of the Constitution's liberty and equality guarantees has changed over time, and how lawyers and judges do--or should--apply these constitutional provisions to some of the most pressing legal controversies of the twenty-first century. Scheduled examination. C. Franklin.
