This course will introduce students to public law, which describes the scope and limits of the government¿s authority over individuals. Students will learn about the substantive bodies of law that regulate individual conduct, such as criminal law and governmental regulations. The course will also cover the manner in which these substantive laws are enforced through the governmental institutions¿police, prosecutors, and regulatory agencies¿that are charged with their administration. Last, students will be introduced to constitutional limitations, such as the Bill of Rights, that constrain the power of the government in cases where individual rights are implicated. In short, this course will provide students with a basic understanding of the relationship between the government and the individual in American law.
