INTRODUCTION TO KEY CONSTITUTIONAL CONCEPTS AND SUPREME COURT CASES의 최상위 리뷰
Professor does a great job and in explaining the complexities. He does not take any partisan stand and does a great job and giving prominence to all sides of the argument. Enjoyed the course throughly
The videos can seem kind of awkward, so I followed along with the transcript at the bottom. Overall, very helpful! I used this course to prepare for a Constitutional Law class that I begin this fall!
This is a great introductory or refresher course. Everything is put forth in an easy-to-understand concept. It was beneficial to me to compare key cases and how society affected them. Thank you.
Prof. Roosevelt is amazing. I wish there were 4-5 more of these courses on Constitutional law, each with a different emphasis. I feel like I learned a lot about my country by taking this course.
The lectures were great and the quizzes asked tough but fair questions. I am looking forward to using the knowledge I gained to enhance my teaching of government at the high school level.
This is a great overview of Constitutional Law and the history of the US Constitution. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to better inform themselves and their political opinions.
it is one of the interesting course that i have ever came across! if any individual want to learn the basic and fundamentals of american constitution then he must join this course.
The entire course was very thoroughly presented and has been really helpful and informative in enhancing my knowledge about the American legal system. Kudos to UPenn and Coursera!
Chronologically organized lecture which used non legalese terms made the basics or key concepts of the US Constitution, its evolution and modern application easier to understand.
Wonderfully organized into easy to understand and easy to follow concepts. Finally understood some concepts which had eluded my grasp when my high school teachers covered it.
It is very enlightening. I am from Indonesia but I can absorb the material so well. So, it encourages me to learn about American and Constitutional History more. Thank you :)
Clear and comprehensive coverage of the constitution and how it is interpreted. The instructor gives frequent examples for both sides of the issue which aids understanding.
Excellent material, presented in a succinct manner. Well worth attempting, in order to obtain a rudimentary introduction into American Constitutional Jurisprudence.
Great course. Timely given the issues of the time and the misconceptions that young people in particular have in reference to what is and is not constitutional.
I enjoyed the class. It was very informative. I enjoyed watching the lectures. The professor's lectures were well thought out and actually filmed well.
This course gives a good overview of Constitutional topics and covers some recent decisions as well. It is very informative and well worth your time.
Very good intro/overview course. The supplementary materials and resources supplied via the course are a good jumping off point for further study.
The Presenter was excellent. I wanted an overview of the US constitutional concepts and this was so easy to understand. Excellent set of lectures.
I enjoyed this course. The course described and gave details about our Constitution and its contributions to Equal Protection and Human Rights.
Excellent course. Very well taught. A good course for those who are not familiar with the United States Constitution as it explains everything.
