Very interesting course. I learnt a lot. Also about the American history. Very nice that this course is given by Professor Amar. He speaks with a lot of passion for this subject.
This course is very engaging. You will learn so much about the history of the constitution as well as how it ties to current events.
I really enjoyed the professor's enthusiasm and learned a lot about the context in which the Constitution was written as well as the overarching themes.
excellent review of the content, intentions, and context behind the language of the Constitution, including the amendments. I really enjoyed it.
