We the Students: Supreme Court Cases for and About Students, 3rd Edition
Jamin B. Raskin, American University

    This unique reference has introduced countless students to the field of legal studies by studying Supreme Court issues that directly affect young people. For this third edition, CQ Press worked directly with educators to retain the best features of the previous editions while updating and further refining the material, including a significantly expanded treatment of Equal Protection and discrimination. The book’s freshly updated design facilitates student comprehension with new features such as legal definitions in the margin, a “Dissenting Voices” section to provide context for minority judicial opinions, new exercises, and much more.
    “Well written, very engaging, and with typically high CQ Press production values.” - American Reference Books Annual

    “This title is highly recommended for high school and public libraries.” - American Reference Books Annual

    "This is an outstanding work" - Library Media Connection
    Praise for the Previous Edition:
    "This book should be in the library, on the teacher's desk, and used as a reader for students."
    - John Banbury, Teacher, McLean High School, Virginia

    "Professor Raskin has performed what many educators thought impossible: We the Students is a dynamic, riveting, but fundamental dimension of our constitutional democracy. We the Students transforms students into Justices and advocates arguing and resolving matters of grave importance to daily life. Civics class will never be the same." - Kenneth W. Starr, Former Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
    Jamin B. Raskin, American University

    Jamin B. Raskin is professor of constitutional law and the First Amendment at American University Washington College of Law and founder of its Marshall-Brennan Fellows Program, which places law students in public high schools to teach the We the Students constitutional literacy course. A former assistant attorney general for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Raskin is an active public interest lawyer, defending the rights of political expression and participation for both adults and young people. He is also the author of Overruling Democracy (2003) and dozens of law review articles, op-eds, and essays on constitutional law.
