Constitutional Law 101 Lecture 7 Now Available For Download


An Internet Course

Presented By Professor Henry Mark Holzer

Hank Holzer delivered his live Lecture 7 on Sunday, February 28, 2010. This is its content:

7. Prohibitions On Both Congress And The States: The Bill Of Rights and The Fourteenth Amendment

Introduction to the Bill of Rights, which almost failed to be adopted.

By what trick of judicial legerdemain did the Bill of Rights—whose First Amendment begins "Congress shall make no law. . . ."—come to limit the powers reserved to the states under the Tenth Amendment?

The myth of "substantive" Due Process, and laundresses, killers, contraception, and abortion.

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.
