State Constitutional Law: Cases and Materials by Robert Franklin Williams

State Constitutional Law is designed to provide the basis for a lively and exciting two- or three-credit course in this area of the law that continues to gain importance every day. State constitutional law issues arise in a surprisingly wide range of areas of law practice. Now, more than ever, lawyers and judges are discovering the importance of state constitutions and the judicial interpretations of those constitutions.

This new edition follows closely the basic structure and philosophy of the earlier editions. There have been some slight changes in emphasis, and all of the Notes and Questions have been updated to include recent materials. The text explores the many common themes that appear in the body of constitutional law of all states and focuses on the importance of the unique language and judicial interpretation of state constitutions in resolution of specific issues. Among the issues examined in detail in State Constitutional Law are:

The political context in which state constitutions evolve;
State constitutional rights provisions not appearing in the Federal Constitution;
Reapportionment and the public purpose requirement for state statutes; and
Womens rights proposals.

The Concise Edition of this casebook is a relatively compact, easy-to-wield book that focuses on the text of Supreme Court opinions and other primary documents.
