Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] as a Key Elective : Students interested in civil liberty issues and the protection of those rights should consider taking one or more courses in constitutional law. This course focuses on one of the central ways in which constitutional claims are actually litigated: in lawsuits against public officials and local governments. This course is particularly useful for students who plan to clerk in federal courts, since much of their dockets involves section 1983 litigation.

General course Description:

This is a course in advanced and applied constitutional law. It focuses on one of the central ways in which constitutional claims are actually litigated: in damages lawsuits against public officials and local governments. The bulk of the course looks at litigation under 42 U.S.C. A § 1983, but we will also consider Bivens actions against federal officials. Our focus will be on absolute and qualified immunities; government liability for the acts of individual officials; damages; the interaction of damages actions with the habeas system; and the remedial issue nearest and dearest to many lawyers' hearts: attorney's fees awards. This course is particularly useful for students who plan to clerk in Federal courts, as much of their dockets involves §1983 litigation. This course complements Federal Jurisdiction and students who plan to clerk will benefit from taking both courses.

Course Style: A Substantive/Statutory course deals with law, theory, and policy in the context of a particular code or statutory scheme.
