American Democracy

This seminar will examine a variety of topics about the law that defines and organizes American democracy. The precise topics will depend on student choices of paper topics, but subjects likely to be covered include legislative apportionment (including the anomalous case of the United States Senate), campaign finance, and the role of political parties. Some political theory will be read, and there will likely be exploration of some comparative dimensions of democratic government and the law impringing on it. Evaluation: The final grade will be based on class discussion and seminar paper. Teaching method: Seminar Discussion
