The United States aspires to be a nation of laws. The founders set out to create a system of government that would use laws to equally and fairly protect the rights of individuals from private criminals, angry mobs, and would-be tyrants. Our Constitution is remarkable for how it has defended against these risks for so long. It has also framed debate about failures to live up to ideals of equality and fairness, efforts to form “a more perfect union.” Movements to protect people from injustice and to limit government overreach have relied upon the language and provisions of the Constitution.

For this reason, the Constitution is best understood in applying it to the hard cases of real life. Thinking about the Constitution in light of arguments about how to apply it today helps us understand the text more deeply and to understand why its interpretation matters. This course is intended for students who will be taking AP US Government. It will feature guest speakers on a series of contemporary issues.

If your course is full you may sign up for the waiting list here.
