Case Briefs on Constitutional Law

From the Author
I wrote the following briefs while taking the first-yearcourse in constitutional law at Columbia Law School.The briefs are keyed to
 Processes of Constitutional Decisionmaking 
, 5th edition, by Brest et al. Most briefsconsist of five sections: (1) an overview stating thenature of the case; (2) a summary of the facts, (3) thelegal issue to be addressed; (4) the court’s resolution of the issue, and (5) the reasoning used to reach the court’sconclusion. Owing to differential coverage of material,some cases appear as abbreviated “squibs” rather thanfull-length briefs. In such instances, I have striven tocapture the essence of the case without adverting to toomuch information not contained within the book. —Y. H.July 6, 2010
