WHAT is the perspective of this class?

It reflects the liberal arts, Trivium model. Our approach is Biblically-based, culture-confronting, worldview-structured, and multi-disciplinary. The allegorical title pictures – with extraordinary clarity – America’s Culture War as a polemic, climactic court-style conflict. Madison represents the Judeo-Christian worldview of law and the Constitution; Langdell represents the Humanistic. This overview defines and defends the Madisonian side.

WHY should you participate?

You can gain knowledge in government, history, communications, logic, philosophy, etc., while also advancing your skills in leadership, critical thinking, oral persuasion, professional vocabulary, and citizenship. You will also access our unique resources – live interaction with professors and other leaders from the three different, but interrelated, partner groups hosting you.
