This class will explore the US Constitution, the text, as drafted in 1787and as andsusequently amended, its legal and historical context, the role of the federal courts in its development, and some of the the issues that confront us today. We will address the Constitutional Convention of 1787, its participants, debates and compromises, and ask how 55 diverse, often fractious delegates representing 12 of the 13 former English colonies agreed to a document that established a nation.
