An annually-revised paperback designed for a single-semester course on constitutional law. The most recent set of teaching materials by four renowned professors, who are co-authors of a long-time favorite - - the much larger Constitutional Law: Cases, Comments & Questions, 11th edition. By judicious editing and careful summarizing of the most important Supreme Court cases, the four co-authors of Leading Cases in Constitutional Law have managed to produce a set of constitutional law teaching materials under 900 pages. The new paperback will be published every summer for classroom use in the fall. It will include all the significant cases handed down during the most recent Supreme Court Term. Leading Cases contain what one might call the essentials for teaching a basic course in constitutional law. The organization of the new compact book will be similar to the much larger Choper - Fallon - Kamisar - Shiffrin casebook (one which will continue to be revised and published) and the big book (which contains many Notes & Questions) will be available as a resource book for the smaller one.

The way this book is edited makes a complicated subject far harder to understand. Because it is abbreviated, many of the case's facts are unreasonably shorted making the Court's analysis very difficult to understand. Further there are no "questions and notes" sections like typical law school books. This again makes analysis of the cases more difficult than necessary. Anyone can search for cases, the purpose of a textbook should be to instruct and pose questions for better understanding than just drying reading of important constitutional law cases. Any professor contemplating using this book should seriously reconsider.

This book may make you want to claw out your eyeballs. Not only is the font poorly chosen, the leading and font size make the cases hard to read. No white space anywhere, and neither is there any delineation of important concepts (no bolding, italics, etc.; only case names get special treatment: all caps.) Further, the so-called important cases (ones that give important tests or concepts) sometimes get only a fleeting mention. Bottom line: unless your professor is amazing, you are going to need a supplement. In fact, just stick to the supplement. Most of my classmates quit reading this book after the first week. I kept at it (mostly skimming), but definitely relied on supplements, as the book gives little to no commentary on the cases themselves or the topics to which the cases relate.

The book is a good brief overview of famous con law cases. However, the abbreviated nature of the book can often be confusing.

One of absolute worst books on law I have ever had the displeasure of reading. Throughout the book, and I'd say about half of it, cases are laid out with all their methodical analysis without much clarification afterwards. Normally this wouldn't be so bad, but the way the book is edited just makes it a mess. It would be helpful if the book had introductions that aided the reader by explaining some preliminaries of landmark cases, but it does not. It would be nice if after the cases, notes were presented, as in traditional law books, to further clarify what is actually happening, but nope.

The other half of the book consists of cases that are haphazardly summarized in meaningless fashion as little "squibs". Amazingly, you will finish reading a tough, complex case, without understanding much of exactly what the court did, then go on to spend twice the time trying to understand one of these tiny case summaries that follow. It is amazing how poorly written they are and how little quality information they convey. I have read through nearly the whole book as part of my constitutional law course, and as i near the end i absolutely have to burn off some steam from reading such an abysmal book and bash it here.

On the bright side, I've learned that as part of my freedom of expression, I cannot be fined by the government when I burn this book.

The book came in a timely fashion and was in great condition! Excluding a sticker on the front that stated it was the teacher's edition (which i don't believe it was), the book was pretty much brand new.
