PLSC 483: CONSTIT LAW II:NATIONAL POWERS

(S) An overview of the United States Supreme Court's interpretations of Articles I, II, and III of the federal constitution. These articles divide the powers of the federal government between three ostensibly co-equal branches. The respective branches may only exercise those powere sgranted to them by the respective Articles. Powers not delegatd to one of the branches are reserved to the states. These two constitutional principles - separation of powers and federalism - invariably generate conflicts between the three branches and between the branches and the various states. The Supreme Court's efforts to arbitrate such conflicts are examined through analysis of its decisions and its efforts to interpret the "plain meaning" of the Constitution's language, and to discern the "intent of the founders." Cross listed as CRJU 483. (Even Years Only).
