One central issue in academic constitutional theory in the twentieth century has concerned the proper scope and legitimacy of judicial review. Although we have accepted judicial review as a matter of historical fact, there is substantial disagreement as to how the practice should or could be justified. This course will provide an introduction to that debate, while also situating those arguments within the context of empirical studies of judicial behavior and the Court’s relationship to American politics.

Intended audience: Upper-level undergraduates and graduate students

Course Requirements: Attendance, participation in discussions, 12-15 page paper, midterm and final examination

Class Format: lecture/discussion 3 hours per week
