• the applicability of the bill of rights to the states via the fourteenth amendment.

How is the bill of rights applicable to the 14th amendment?
Asked Sep 03, 2012
The 14th Amendment was passed in the post civil-war period (1868) to correct many of the issues that resulted from slavery. It essentially made the Bill of Rights applicable to all people in all of the states through the Citizenship Clause, the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause.
