Current Issues and the Supreme Court: Liberal and Conservative Views
Liberals and conservatives differ on a wide range of constitutional issues currently being contested in national and state politics, including presidential versus congressional powers, freedom of speech and religion, money in politics, gun rights, abortion policy, equal protection of the law, and LGBT rights. The outcomes of many of these conflicts will be determined by the U.S. Supreme Court. This lecture-discussion class will focus on the legal status of these issues rather than on the merits of the respective positions. The vital role of citizens in the constitutional process will be emphasized. The instructor, Charles Monsma, is a retired Professor of Political Science at Eastern Michigan University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan.
