This course will focus on politics, the political and electoral process, and the courts. We will examine how and when the American courts intervene in the regulation of politics, and how various constitutional and statutory protections affect the outcomes of political disputes. We will examine some of the key legal and policy issues framing the political landscape: judicial selection, the right to vote, money and politics, reapportionment and vote dilution. We also will look at the role of the political parties, the federal and state judiciary, and the voters, among other significant players. This course will deal with current events in the context of these issues.
