Just got our conlaw syllabus, and it includes your basic topics like freedom of speech/religion/association/etc., commerce clause, federalism, etc., but also “Redistricting and Civil Rights: One Person, One Vote,” affirmative action, gay marriage, abortion, “The Right to Die,” presidential power in wartime, indefinite detention, and the Affordable Care Act, among others.

This class is going to be super interesting.

That said, reading emails that begin, “Read and be prepared to discuss…” still make me groan a little.
