Case Analysis #1 Supremacy Clause because it provides that the Constitution, and the Laws of the United States shall be the supreme Law of the Land. #2 a.

Case Analysis #1 Separate but equal was a legal doctrine in American constitutional law that justified systems of segregation. Under this doctrine, services, facilities and public accommodations were allowed to be separated by race, on the condition that the quality of each group's public facilities was to remain equal. #2 We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of “separate but equal” has no place.
