POS 3240 - Cases in Civil Liberties

3 cr
This course is an analysis of Supreme Court decisions in the general area of Civil Liberties and Civil Rights, particularly concentrating on the rights of freedom of religion, expression, and assembly; the rights of privacy; and the rights related to equal protection of the laws (such as non-discrimination in voting, employment, education, housing, etc.). We will be employing a combination of the case method (analysis of actual Supreme Court decisions) and a consideration of the political, socio-economic, and cultural context in which the issues are formulated, and decisions are made and implemented.
Prerequisite: POS 1020 .
