Exploring Constitutional Law

James Madison

From the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, comes this faculty website devoted to issues and controversies surrounding constitutional law.

It includes, naturally, the text of the Constitution itself. It goes on to explore its history, and the major figures in its formation, including the man who would one day become president, James Madison (above). The reader is also introduced to the US Supreme Court, and the landmark cases upon which it has ruled. There are also a host of links dedicated to specific issues, from property rights to prayer in public schools.
