Professors Baker and Viator discuss the shortcomings of the current law school constitutional law curriculum. They lament the emphasis on current Supreme Court cases to the almost complete exclusion of the actual text of the Constitution and writings of the intellectual and philosophical history from which it sprang. The professors then lay out a syllabus for their proposed three credit constitutional law class.
