Course Description

This course surveys a range of individual rights topics, starting with the Speech and Religion Clauses of the First Amendment and moving on to the Second Amendment and some selected topics in economic rights (e.g., civil forfeiture and occupational licensing) and privacy (e.g., abortion, mandatory vaccination, experimental medications). It overlaps very substantially with the Speech & Press and Religious Liberty courses, and is intended for students who want a basic overview of this material and do not expect to take those more in-depth classes. It does not cover equal protection/civil rights issues or anything related to the criminal process. The particular topics and emphasis will reflect the interests of the instructor and recent developments at the Supreme Court.
