Material is presented in a succinct and efficient format. In addition to presenting the rules currently governing each topic of constitutional law, the book also provides historical and jurisprudential contexts which produced current doctrine.

Excerpts from scholarly writings and the authors' commentaries and notes are used sparingly to provide guidance only when necessary.
