Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! In this week's episode, as part of our "Listen and Learn" series, we're talking about an important area of Constitutional Law -- the Fourteenth Amendment. Specifically, we take a look at procedural due process, substantive due process, and equal protection. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • A review of the Fourteenth Amendment's Due Process Clause and Equal Protection Clause
  • The procedure for analyzing substantive due process, procedural due process, and equal protection
  • The Supreme Court case Mathews v. Eldridge
  • Strict scrutiny, intermediate scrutiny, and rational basis
  • How to identify state interest
  • Going through a Constitutional Law fact pattern from the July 2013 California bar exam
