Going beyond the standard interpretation of Supreme Court opinions, this practical text delves into the legal reasoning behind the written opinions - the modes of persuasion and justification used by Supreme Court justices - to give readers a deeper understanding of how to read and interpret the decisions of our highest court.

 

An indispensable supplement to any constitutional law casebook, the sixth edition has been thoroughly updated, incorporating new material throughout the book on recent opinions issued by the Supreme Court.  It also includes a new Chapter 9, which discusses in greater depth the briefing of a case - Seattle School District No. 1 - and its analysis.

From the Back Cover:

“In my mind, there is no competitor to the van Geel book. The text is both concise and informative. It conveys a lot of essential information that is not presented in most books, and I have found it to be invaluable in teaching the classes.”

–Chris W. Bonneau, University of Pittsburgh

“…I hope this book will see many more editions. It is an extremely valuable text to any teacher of constitutional law for undergradutes, and also should have a very prominent place in any course on judicial process or introductory American government.”

–Philip Dynia, Loyola University
