As part of my effort to identify online resources for teaching and learning administrative law, I thought I’d flag this post from Josh Blackman (and Randy Barnett). Their book Introduction to Constitutional Law is a great introduction and refresher to the main cases, and the accompanying videos are really engaging. The book, which comes with access to the videos, is less than $25 on Amazon, but the publisher (Wolters Kluwer) has just made the videos free to watch for students through the end of May.
Here are the details from Josh’s post:
In September, Randy Barnett and I published An Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know. Since its release, 100 Cases has been the top-selling book on Amazon for constitutional law, and our publisher has to keep printing more copies to meet demand. We are also pleased that many professors–both law school and undergraduate–have adopted the book as a supplement. Moreover, many law students have been using our product to help their studies.
In light of our current situation, An Introduction to Constitutional Law has become even more timely. Randy and I developed an online library of sixty-three videos brings the Supreme Court’s one hundred most important decisions to life. These videos are enriched by photographs, maps, and even audio from the Supreme Court. The library runs eleven-hours in length. You can see a preview of the videos here.
We have some excellent news. Our publisher, Wolters Kluwer, has made the videos freely accessible to students through May 31. No cost. We are truly grateful to work with such an amazing team.
