Special Opportunity for Evening Division and Part-Time Students

Online Course, Summer 2014

Advanced Constitutional Law: Current Issues

 June 2-25
Mondays & Wednesdays
6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Constitutional Law I & II

 Limited Enrollment
Scholarships Available

The School of Law is pleased to offer a pilot online course during the 2014 summer session, and a select number of evening division and part-time students are eligible to enroll with full scholarship support.

The two-credit course, Advanced Constitutional Law: Current Issues, will be taught by Wilson R. Huhn, a distinguished professor at Akron Law School and nationally recognized constitutional law expert. The class will explore pending cases in the areas of equal protection, separation of powers, the powers of Congress, freedom of expression, and freedom of religion. Constitutional Law I & II are prerequisite courses.

Students will attend “live” via their laptops, from a location of their choosing, on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The course will run for four weeks, June 2-25. In addition to the scheduled online class time, students will watch recorded lectures, take quizzes, and read materials relating to cases pending in the Supreme Court of the United States.

In each class, a student will make a brief online presentation regarding material relating to one of these cases, such as an amicus brief or an aspect of oral argument. A one-page journal entry will be due the first week and second week, and a five-page research paper will be due at the end of the course.

Enrollment is limited to 15. The pilot course is being offered with full-tuition scholarships thanks to the generous support of the Duquesne University Office of the Provost.
