Constitutional Law

All lawyers must understand the fundamental principles of the Constitution to serve as stewards of the law. Students pursuing careers in civil rights law, government, or the judiciary will benefit from this focus area's in-depth study of topics including federalism, separation of powers, due process, equal protection, and freedom of expression and religion.

The Civil Rights Clinic provides representation in federal courts for prisoners incarcerated in Michigan. The First Amendment Law Clinic represents student journalists on free speech issues, and its clinicians provide First Amendment workshops to local high school journalism programs.
