Description

This is the first casebook dedicated to the California Constitution. It begins by introducing the history of the California Constitution and its relationship to the federal and other state constitutions, and then covers the California constitutional provisions that establish the design and structure of California’s state and local governments, protect individual rights, and govern other areas like elections, public finance, and water rights. Designed to allow professors to select the topics to be covered in a three- to four-unit lecture course or discussion seminar, the book’s narrative style combines essays and case excerpts that make the law easily accessible to students and introduce them to the important role that the California Constitution plays in developing California law.
