Basis of American law - Constitutions “The Constitution” usually refers to the United States Constitution, which governs entire U.S. All laws in the U.S. must comply with the U.S. Constitution since it is “the supreme law of the land” Any statute (federal or state) that conflicts with U.S. Constitution is unconstitutional (invalid). Any state statute that conflicts with federal statute is preempted (invalid). However, each state has its own state constitution which often provides additional rights or an alternative way to have rights; e.g. , establishment of religion clause in recent “Ten Commandments” case in Oklahoma.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
