This course offers an introduction to the U.S. Constitution and landmark Supreme Court cases interpreting it. It explores the Constitution’s origins, its amendment over the years, and methods of constitutional interpretation. Topics include the nature and structure of the federal government, the powers of the federal government, and individual rights.
I completed this course (see below) in November 2015. I highly recommend this course, especially when our Republic is in peril. Understanding our U.S. Constitution can help us negotiate challenging decisions in our personal/public lives.
