Anyone interested in being a discussant can email a description of his/her teaching technique and ideas that relate to the description below to Professor Eang Ngov at In addition, please contact Professor Ngov for information regarding the group’s current discussants.

Project Description:
Teaching Constitutional Law has its unique challenges: lack of bright-line rules, layers of doctrine that pile on exceptions to exceptions, complex and fragmented opinions, and inconsistent jurisprudence. This discussion group focuses on techniques and ideas that make Constitutional Law accessible to students, provide clarity to a muddled subject area, show students real world relevance and significance, make students practice-ready, and maintain their engagement. Discussants will share ideas about group work, in class exercises, potential for flipping the classroom, experiential learning, role play, workshops outside of class, informal assessments, etc.
