NOTE: This B weekend course meets on: August 30; September 12, 13, 26, 27; October 10, 11, 24, 25; November 7, 8 and 14.

The seminar is a survey and discussion of selected contemporary problems in civil liberties, using both case law (largely Supreme Court) and contemporary writings as base materials. The topics for this fall’s classes will be the interplay between rights of privacy and freedom of speech, religious liberty, academic freedom, sexual orientation and civil liberties, terrorism and civil liberties, and alcohol and drug abuse. There is some overlap with Constitutional Law II, as to both subject matter and particular cases addressed. Students are graded on the basis of class participation. Neither an examination nor a paper is required.

NOTE: Laptops are not allowed during class sessions.
