Constitutional Law: Cases, Materials, and Problems, Fifth Edition by Russell L. Weaver, Steven Friedland, and Richard Rosen is designed as a teacher’s book by stimulating thought, inviting discussion, and helping professors more effectively teach. Its thought-provoking problem approach encourages students to delve deeper into constitutional doctrine and gives them an accessible and interesting way to learn constitutional issues. Problems at the beginning of each chapter are referenced throughout the text for continuity. Principal constitutional law cases are edited as lightly as possible to allow the Supreme Court to speak for itself, with shorter notes that accompany the problems.

New to the Fifth Edition:

  • Text is completely up-to-date
  • Exploration of litigation related to the pandemic and the 2020 racial justice protests
  • A number of important recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions have been added, including the following:
    • Rucho v. Common Cause (partisan gerrymandering); Gill v. Whitford (partisan gerrymandering); Abbott v. Perez (racial gerrymandering); Cooper v. Harris (racial gerrymandering);

    • Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of California (executive power and DACA); Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project (executive power and immigration restrictions); and Hawaii v. Trump (executive power and immigration restrictions)

Professors and students will benefit from:

    • Lightly edited cases allow students to see the fullest possible analysis of the law.
    • Diverse perspectives are presented on constitutional interpretation, federalism, and public policy.
    • An emphasis on federalism and other oft-marginalized topics– compared to other constitutional law casebooks, this text spends considerable time on federalism, balance of powers, and other topics that are sometimes only given passing reference.
    • A complete examination of Second Amendment rights and executive power.
