I’m nearly caught up on all of the important law books I need to tell you about from this year. I’ve been saving this one because I love it so much, but now I’m in the summer. I’ve got my beach books, I’ve got my beer, and I’ve got my Bachelorette. I’m ready to tell you about constitutional law casebooks. It’s kind of like Jane Austen, where you have to give the ubiquitous hierarchy of favorites, so here it is:

This is one of the most punishing reads I've labored through in a while. It's also one of the most informative.
Great book to reference to when I have questions about something in the law. In addition it was a textbook I used in class

Interesting readings, but the material could have been edited in a more organized way, as well as more succinctly.

This is the life of a law student. Consider yourself warned.
Footnote 4 of Carolene Products is the most famous footnote of all time (at least among Supreme Court Opinions). One can find footnote 4 in this book.

Way too long; I enjoy a scholarly debate on incorporation as much as most, but there is no need for this many cases in one book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this textbook. It allowed me to learn Constitutional law with the assistance of the Socratic method. It was one of the only books I kept after law school.
