In the first few weeks of the course, we shall read and discuss recent works in the subject of constitutional interpretation generally, as well as highly detailed works in the subfield of due process and equal protection. We shall experience the enterprise of constitutional interpretation in much the same fashion as the American Supreme Court does: as an activity bounded by the constitutional document, legal logic, politics, and precedent.
