TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO KEY CONSTITUTIONAL CONCEPTS AND SUPREME COURT CASES
Excellent background, context, and teaching of Constitutional law. It is incredible that the U.S. Constition was so detrimental to the development of the greatest nation on Earth!
It is very enlightening. I am from Indonesia but I can absorb the material so well. So, it encourages me to learn about American and Constitutional History more. Thank you :)
This course was very didactic and easy to understand. I liked the way that the different theories about each subject were presented, allowing me to build my own opinion and perspective on each matter.
Clear and comprehensive coverage of the constitution and how it is interpreted. The instructor gives frequent examples for both sides of the issue which aids understanding.
