Abstract:

The programs in "Equal Justice Under Law" focus upon landmark cases that arose early in our history and in which Chief Justice John Marshall played a major role as judge. The films are designed to promote reflection and discussion about the United States Constitution, particularly as it relates to enforcement by the courts of the separation of powers at the federal level and the division of powers between state and federal government and specific constitutional prohibitions and limitations upon the exercise of official authority by reason of the Constitution.
