How the U.S. Constitution Shapes Individual Rights

Lifelong Learning

The course will cover the constitutional bases of fundamental rights of persons in the United States and the most important Supreme Court cases that recognize and define these rights, emphasizing the 1st, 2nd, 9th, and 14th Amendments from the Bill of Rights. Included will be cases dealing with freedom of and from religion; freedom of speech, including the leading cases on “obscenity”; the rights to both gun ownership and reasonable gun regulation; and intensely personal rights, such as the right to privacy, which in turn leads to cases on reproductive choice and to same-sex marriage. The course also will examine how Supreme Court viewpoints on these rights have evolved and how the concepts of “liberal” and “conservative” are relative, either broadly or narrowly interpreting the Constitution, depending upon the right being considered. Each participant will receive a pocket copy of the Constitution.
