of right to privacy is more protection than the U.S. Constitution’s. The U.S. Constitution is very broad in some concepts when it comes to the right to privacy. The California Constitution on the other hand is fairly descriptive when it comes to their amendments. The first section of the California Constitution is not explicit when talking about right to privacy, but there are many other sections that do talk explicitly about the right to privacy.

California’s bill of rights clearly says that all the political power itself belongs to the citizens while the government is just there to protect and help better serve the people. 4. Assess the merit of explicit versus general constitutional language in the protection of rights. Is one more preferable than another? How does the language in your state constitution compare to the language in the U.S. Constitution? a. The merit of explicit language is good because it makes everything very clear and it makes it completely impossible to misinterpret. On the other hand, general language is also good because it leaves a lot of leniency because it can be interpreted by the court to better suit a situation. So, in my opinion one is not more preferable over the other because they both have their own benefits. When comparing the language of the California Constitution to the U.S. Constitution it is clear that California is much more explicit compared to the U.S.’s.

    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.
