Honestly, I really wanted to like this book because I am a big fan of Kathleen Sullivan, but this is not a great textbook. I am a second-year law student, so this book might work better for someone in an undergraduate course or someone reading Constitutional Law for fun.

Pros:
Good selection of cases to achieve the finer points of Constitutional Law
Mostly useful notes after cases

Cons:
There are many typos in the casebook, and some weird citations. The formatting is generally poor, and I think they should have waited or had more copyediting done with this text.
The notes section, though helpful as stated earlier, is often incredibly long, and this can make it hard to synthesize different portions of the notes together
In this vein, sometimes portions of full cases that are cited later are referenced in lengthy notes earlier, when it would have been easier to merely insert the full case in the earlier section

Because citizens file new cases involving judicial interpretation of Constitutional Law, the author turns out annual supplements to her original "Constitutional Law" textbook annually. I highly recommend to all readers that once you acquire her original "Constitutional Law" textbook, you also acquire these annual supplemental textbooks to keep current on how our Federal Judiciary continues to 'interpret' our Constitution.

Her intent is to illustrate how Constitutional Law is ever evolving ~ and at the same time, she takes the latest annual newly released case precedence back to the intent of our Founding Fathers by linking these newest rulings & precedence to "The Federalist Papers" and "The Anti-Federalist Papers".

A recommendation: when you acquire both "Constitutional Law" and the most recent Supplement, make certain you also have on-hand copies of "The Federalist Papers" and "The Anti-Federalist Papers" ~ while the author replicates the words from all of these papers into her textbooks & supplements, it's also equally great to have both sets of Papers on-hand ... so that you can read the full text referenced by the author for a greater understanding of the minds of our Founding Fathers ...

... and how their papers of 220+ years ago are still 100% applicable to today's Republic we live in!

I may be biased on this review because my professor did not have us use the book the way most do. He picked it purposely because it has the most cases in it. We just skipped around and read cases and our final was listing case names. This thing makes a good paper weight though

Good book. Required for class. Will suggest that you also get Principles of COn Law by nowak n rotunda, it breaks the required text down in easier to understand format

The highlighting and pen markings and scribbly underlining make it difficult to read. I'm okay with some highlighting and underlining but this is overboard. Practically the whole book is covered with highlighter and pen markings. It should have been thrown out not resold.

Book had so many notes and highlighted portions it was unreadable in some sections. All markings were in PEN. Book was in HORRIBLE condition. This book should not have been resold at all.
