Area of Study in Constitutional Law
At Liberty Law, Constitutional Law is taught from the perspective of our nation’s Founding Fathers, believing that law and legitimate governmental authority come from God. Through the Constitution, certain powers (e.g., power to regulate interstate commerce and coin money) have been delegated to the federal government, reserving all others to the states or to the people. All civil government has limits on jurisdiction, and the Constitution expressly articulates several rights designed to protect individuals. At Liberty Law, you can enhance your decision-making skills and prepare to protect constitutional freedoms, defend your clients, and restore the culture.
