PS 145B: Public Law and Judicial Process Constitutional Law: Separation of Powers Spring 2008 Professor Mary McThomas [email protected] Office: Bunche 4258 Office Hours: Wednesdays and Fridays 12:00 – 1:00 and by appointment In this class, we will explore constitutional questions regarding the separation of powers. The course is divided into three parts. In the first part, we will examine the division of powers among the three branches of the federal government. We will look at some of the conflicts between and among the branches and the constitutional questions that arise as a result. In the second part of the class, we will study the separation of powers between the national government and the states and explore issues of dual sovereignty within U.S. federalism. In the final section we will look at private versus public power; specifically how private property and civil liberties create another form of power that complicates federalism and adds a layer of complexity to the institutional understanding of the separation of powers.

    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.
