A leading text by a prominent scholar, Constitutional Law is known for its concise, comprehensive, and student-friendly presentation. Professor Chemerinsky's frame of reference coupled with rich background information make the law more readily understood. Influenced by 40+ years of teaching, Constitutional Law is dedicated to students who have consistently expressed a preference for straightforward and accessible content. A flexible organization accommodates a variety of course structures; no chapter assumes that students have read preceding material. A complete Teacher’s Manual and Annual Case Supplement round out this acclaimed text.

New to the Seventh Edition:

Constitutional law has dramatically changed in the last few years. Changes in the law have required revisions throughout, creating a significantly different book than its predecessors. Since the sixth edition the Supreme Court has 

  • Overruled Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization
  • Expanded Second Amendment rights in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen
  • Effectively eliminated affirmative action in Students for Fair Admission v. University of North Carolina and Students for Fair Admission v. Harvard University
  • Changed the law concerning the religion clauses of the First Amendment in cases such as Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, Carson v. Makin, and Fulton v. City of Philadelphia

In addition to the revisions necessitated by these updates to the law, the book has been carefully and thoroughly edited. A new design has been adopted to make navigating notes and cases more straightforward.

The overall approach of the book remains the same providing professors and students with:

  • Focus on three types of material: major cases, heavily edited secondary cases, and essays
  • Essays that provide context with historical background, development of the law in areas cases are not directly presented, and summaries of scholarly debates
  • Straightforward, accessible prose 
  • Flexible organization
  • Cases and materials edited to be as ideologically neutral as possible
