Constitutional Law 101 Lecture 6 Now Available For Download


An Internet Course

Presented By Professor Henry Mark Holzer

Hank Holzer delivered his live Lecture 6 on Sunday, February 21, 2010. This is its content:

6. Intergovernmental Relations

The "horizontal" relationship between the states, and the requirement of "full faith and credit" in our political system of "joint sovereignty."

Constitutional Limitations on Congress's Power

Textual limitations on the power of Congress, including suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, to which alien terrorists now captured on the field of battle are entitled.

Constitutional Limitations On The Power Of The States

The few textual limitations of the power of the states, including the prohibition against impairment of contracts—which didn't prevent the Supreme Court from upholding the Minnesota Mortgage Death Act in the heyday of the New Deal.

Please remember that while there is no "homework" for these lectures, to benefit fully from them Hank Holzer strongly recommends you obtain and read a copy of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Also, especially before you download Lecture 2, you will benefit from reading the Supreme Court opinion in Griswold v. Connecticut. You will find it useful to have the four documents available during the lectures you download.
