Prof. R. Uitz
The course covers problems of constitutional adjudication in the U.S., Germany, France, Canada, South Africa and Eastern Europe, with a focus on constitutional review of legislation. Issues include the origin of judicial review, procedural aspects (jurisdiction, standing and admissibility), justification and criticism of the review power. Course materials:
Please note that the course reader does not contain all materials necessary for the
completion of the oral and written assignments. Make sure to bring to class the
respective constitutional documents.

The final grade is based on written assignments [40 per cent], in-class participation [not limited to oral assignments] [40 per cent] and a final exam [20 percent]. The final exam will be a 24 take-home essay. Coming to class unprepared amounts to absence. Please come
already to the first class prepared.
The syllabus calls for 4 (four) written assignments to be submitted during the course. No one shall be admitted to the final exam without presenting all written assignments in due time. All written assignments shall be in an essay format and shall be based on individual work. The assignments are expected to be based on required readings assigned for a particular class and do not call for additional individual research. It is advised that students read all readings required for a class before starting to work on their assignments.
Rules of academic honesty apply to all written work, including written assignments, submitted for the course. Written assignments shall be submitted at
the end of the respective class and not after the class.
Unsatisfactory written assignments may be returned for revision. Revised written assignments shall be submitted a.s.a.p., and no later than the end of the course. Written assignments are scored as Pass, Fail or Rewrite. A successfully revised assignment is worth half of a Pass. In the final grade only the 3 (three) highest scoring assignments will be counted.
Format: Times New Roman CE, 12 pts, double-spaced, no-extra wide / extra- narrow margins. Please use spell-check and observe page limits. Do not forget to put your name on each page.
In addition to written assignments, there are two major in-class oral assignments which are meant to be group projects: one is a moot-court, the other is a debating society-like task. Each student taking the course for grade is expected to participate in two group projects. All members of a group are required to participate in preparing the presentation, yet, not all members of the group are required to speak or participate otherwise during the in-class presentation. It is preferred that each students acts as a lead speaker for one of the two major group projects.
