Constitutional law books, understanding the Constitution, law school study aids, con law outlines, exams, Con Law Examples and Explanations.

For constitution study aids I recommend the Examples and Explanations and Crunch Time. There is a list of law outlines below that you can go over but you really need to develop your own outline. Use these only as a guide and to be sure you have not missed anything. The law school essay is where you need to pick out and discuss the issues. Your law professor has a grading sheet and has assigned a value to each issue. The key is to recognize and then discuss each constitutional issue in the short amount of time allotted. The best way is to go over old exams and do a timed practice.


The Constitution (including its 27 Amendments) is made up of hundreds of clauses.  Some of the clauses are more important than others or have been hotly debated as to their scope, meaning, or effect.  These clauses are given names by which they may be referred.  The following includes some of the more important clauses courtesy of the Legal Information Institute:

Commerce Clause
Confrontation Clause
Commander-in-Chief Clause
Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment
Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment

Who Gets the Ashes

One of the most common arguments between family members is who has the right to make the decedent's funeral arrangements. If your client wants his executor (personal representative) to be responsible, then consider adding the following language into their will.

My executor shall have the power to employ and make the necessary arrangements for the proper disposition of my final remains in accordance with any written statement by me or, if none, at my Executor’s sole discretion except that it is my desire that I be cremated.
