Welcome to our second unit of study! Hopefully you feel better prepared than 3 weeks ago to begin the process of understanding the legal system! In this unit we will start drilling down on CONSTITUTIONAL LAW by doing the following things:
1. Understanding the role of the Supreme Court in our system of government
2. Learning more about the origins of the Bill of Rights
3. Analyzing freedom of expression as it relates to speech and press
4. Analyzing freedom of expression as it relates to religion
These are BIG TOPICS, but hopefully I can introduce them to you in a way that will make the understandable -- that's the goal! Also, be prepared to start working on CASE LAW during this unit of study -- this is something that we will do for the remainder of the course and I will get you started on it right away.
