Welcome to the home page of Prof. Jamar's Constitutional Law II website. This website is only for the course taught by Prof. Jamar. It does not provide any information about the course as it may be taught by other faculty members. For fall 2014 we will be using draft chapters from the constitutional law textbook being written by Profs. Jamar and Francois. Those draft chapters noting only Prof. Jamar as the author indicate that Prof. Francois has not yet reviewed or revised them. These materials are available free of charge from Prof. Jamar's website.

Most of these materials will be available one week before classes start. The rest will be made available ahead of the time when the are assigned.

The syllabus is not fully revised to include these materials yet, but a draft version is available online.
