    Constitutional Law: Cases, Materials, and Problems, Fifth Edition by Russell L. Weaver, Steven Friedland, and Richard Rosen is designed as a teacher’s book by stimulating thought, inviting discussion, and helping professors more effectively teach. Its thought-provoking problem approach encourages students to delve deeper into constitutional doctrine and gives them an accessible and interesting way to learn constitutional issues. Problems at the beginning of each chapter are referenced throughout the text for continuity. Principal constitutional law cases are edited as lightly as possible to allow the Supreme Court to speak for itself, with shorter notes that accompany the problems.
