Notes

In many countries, constitutions guarantee certain interests of individuals and groups against infringement by the state. What effect, if any, do or should these guarantees have in the resolution of legal controversies among individuals and groups -- say, in common-law contract, tort, or property cases -- where the state is not a party? This course will look at answers given in Europe and South Africa, in comparison with those arrived at in the United States under our “state action” doctrine.
