American Politics

Just when i think I'm getting a handle on this stuff, I get thrown for a loop.

What is the "doctrine of selective incorporation"? It's being asked in relation to the nationalization of the Bill of Rights (the process by which most of the provisions of the BoR were held applicable to the states through the due process clause of the 14th amendment). I can't find anything in my notes, handouts, or book and I'm not finding anything on search engines, either. Is it just another name for the due process clause?

Thanks in advance,
Amy :)

Never mind...I just found it :)

Thank you!

To add to the information you found, you might want to consider this information.

"Incorporation of the Bill of Rights is the legal doctrine by which portions of the U.S. Bill of Rights are applied to the states through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Most of those portions of the Bill of Rights were incorporated by a series of United States Supreme Court decisions in the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's."
