Buy Guided PLCY 703-Contemporary Challenges to Constitutional Order and the Role of the State

Course Description

The student is introduced to the contemporary challenges facing America, the prevailing Western legal tradition, and a Biblical model of statesmanship, particularly as these challenges have influenced policy formation. Such challenges include modern reinterpretations of American constitutionalism and the shifting relationship of the State to the individual and other spheres in society.

For information regarding the prerequisites for this course, please refer to the Academic Course Catalog.


The concepts and ideals of constitutional order are not new and have been passed down from generation to generation since constitutions have been written. However, these concepts and ideals have a paradoxical relationship within the modern state. The nuances of statesmanship require a broad overview before finer points can be analyzed accurately. This course will provide an introduction to the prevailing Western legal traditions and how the Commerce Clause to the Constitution has influenced policy formation. In the end, these key principles, along with a biblical model, will guide the student in the finer points of public policy formulation.
