"Justice Breyer discusses what the Court must do going forward to maintain that public confidence and argues for interpreting the Constitution in a way that works in practice.

"Disc 1. Freedom of speech: Amid the turmoil of the 1960s, students decided to wear black armbands to protest the Vietnam War, igniting a legal battle that led to a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision, Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District (1969), which defined students' right to free speech in school. This conversation focuses on free speech in light of Tinker and the Morse v. Frederick (2007) case. Jury Service: This conversation explores the history and responsibilities of juries and the role they play in the United States judicial system. Juries: In 11 short video segments, constitutional experts, lawyers and judges discuss the importance of jury service, including the history of English and American juries, types of juries, qualifications for jury service and what to expect as a juror. Disc 2. Yick Wo and the Equal Protection clause: In Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886), the U.S. Supreme Court held that non-citizens had due process rights under the 14th Amendment. the plaintiff, an immigrant from China who had run a laundry service for 22 years, filed suit after he was denied a permit to operate his business. The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that although the laundry permit law was race-neutral, it was applied in a discriminatory fashion. Korematsu and civil liberties: After America was attacked by Japan at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 consigning 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry (two-thirds of them American citizens) to internment camps. Fred Korematsu challenged the internment all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In Korematsu v. United States (1944), the court sided with the government. Decades later, Congress and the U.S. president formally apologized for the internment" -- Container.

The traditional courage on Administrative Law primarily concerns the delegation of power to administrative agencies, the procedures that the law require them to follow, the legal requirements for obtaining judicial review of agency decision, and the standards applied during that review ... This casebook represents an effort to preserve the essential coverage and virtues of the traditional course ... [In the book, the authors] have added the most recent material on pressing issues in administrative law: constitutional problems, the scope of government regulation, the nature of judicial reviews, the shape of the ever-changing "Chevron" doctrine. [They] have included fresh work on risk regulation, cost-benefit analysis, telecommunications - and also added key recent cases involving regulation of tobacco, the nondelegation doctrine, and judicial review of decisions involving health, safety, and the environment. As before, [they] have worked especially hard to give users of this book a sense of "state of the art" debates now beginning within the courts and likely to play a large role in the future.-Pref.
