Overview

The Constitution of the U.S. is the shortest written constitution in the world. But how does a short constitutional document substantially cover so many aspects of law?

According to expert legal thinker Professor Akhil Reed Amar, the answer lies in America's 'unwritten Constitution' that builds on the text's underlying reasoning and historical context. Named as one of the top 20 contemporary U.S. legal thinkers by Legal Affairs magazine, Amar currently teaches Constitutional Law and Criminal Procedures at Yale University.

In this course, Professor Amar helps us understand the unwritten Constitution by examining the Constitution's historical development, its unenumerated rights, and the application of judicial powers.
