Constitutional Law in the Law School Curriculum

Nearly a week ago a Prof. Elizabeth Dale talked about a trend away from teaching Con Law in law schools (also picked up on the Wall Street Journal Law Blog).  She says that some see constitutional law as important only if you plan on being a Supreme Court Justice or an ACLU attorney.  But, she points out, legal issues from many fields have constitutional implications.  How important do you think that constitutional law is in the law school curriculum?  Are we teaching it correctly?  Are there other things that you feel should be added or removed from the standard schedule of courses?
