This course will explore the division of authority between the states and the national government. We will focus on the "federalism revolution" in the Rehnquist and Roberts Courts, paying attention to recent decisions about the limits on federal regulatory power and federal court jurisdiction. Grades will be based on class participation and a writing assignment.
