Sign up for Free Access to "Introduction to Constitutional Law" 11-Hour Video Library

Wolters Kluwer has generously made our entire video library free until May 31 to assist with distance learning


In September, Randy Barnett and I published An Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know. Since its release, 100 Cases has been the top-selling book on Amazon for constitutional law, and our publisher has to keep printing more copies to meet demand. We are also pleased that many professors–both law school and undergraduate–have adopted the book as a supplement. Moreover, many law students have been using our product to help their studies.

In light of our current situation, An Introduction to Constitutional Law has become even more timely. Randy and I developed an online library of sixty-three videos to bring the Supreme Court's one hundred most important decisions to life. These videos are enriched by photographs, maps, and even audio from the Supreme Court. The library runs eleven-hours in length. You can see a preview of the videos here.

We have some excellent news. Our publisher, Wolters Kluwer, has made the videos freely accessible to students through May 31. No cost. We are truly grateful to work with such an amazing team.

  1. Uh oh … Publisher and authors are about to find out how popular their product is ……

    Wish you well, but I cannot resist the joke.

  2. Thank you professor Blackman. That’s a perfect thing to do while waiting through this lockdown. Learn something!

  3. I finished part 1, despite some trouble with the video stream. (Perhaps the Internet is becoming overloaded.) Thanks again.

    It is good that I chose engineering rather than law as a profession. The whole idea of spending huge quantities of time and effort to replace unclear wording with new wording also unclear, infuriates me. The Talmudic methods of layering analogy on top of analogy infuriates me. The idea of stare decisis infuriates me. I would have been a very troublesome law student.

    We should have let nerds design the Constitution/law/legal methods of reasoning. Yeah yeah, I can feel 1000 arrows aimed at my back as I write. But it might make a fun theme for an alternate history novel.
