TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO KEY CONSTITUTIONAL CONCEPTS AND SUPREME COURT CASES
Chronologically organized lecture which used non legalese terms made the basics or key concepts of the US Constitution, its evolution and modern application easier to understand.
An interesting survey of US constitutional law (I'm Canadian), providing a useful analytical approach and showing great insight. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very well done by Prof. Roosevelt
This course was very helpful and informative. I enjoyed the information and the knowledge I retained. I believe this course would educated an individual (Layman) not knowledgeable in legal profession.
It was my first time taking online classes, the professor gave very solid materials which is very easy to understand and able to memorize. I would recommend this course!
