Arkansas Constitution Seminar - LAWB 6220


Credits Hours: 2

In this seminar students study the Arkansas Constitution of 1874, starting with its history, and then focusing on its current meaning and application. The course covers judicial decisions announcing State constitutional jurisprudence and explores the power the State’s founding document has over the structure and function of the State’s government today. The course is broken into four units: structure, rights, federalism, and finance.  Guest speakers and practical litigation tips are also part of the mix.  The goal is to prepare students not only to better understand the legal system in Arkansas, but also to foster in students a long-term interest in improving, as future members of the Bar, the structure of Arkansas State government.

Required: Elective
Practice Area: Government, Public Policy & Regulation, General Practice
