Abstract: This lecture is concerned with examining the nature of constitutionalism in sharia law and United States. This research explores topics arising in the comparative study of constitutional systems and constitutional questions of law in Iran and United States. My concerns include defining what a constitution actually is and identifying its function within a political system. This lecture investigates the development of Islamic judicial review in the contemporary Constitution of Iran. The secularist view of constitutionalism assumes that shari'a lacks an appropriate framework to effectively derive constitutional principles that would limit government, guarantee human rights, and promote the rule of law.

Abstract: This paper will outline the FoundersÂ’ vision for formal constitutional change committed to a fixed written Constitution and popular consent rooted in natural right conceptions of law. In contrast the Progressive thinkers at the turn of the 19th century offered a competing vision of law which evolved to offer competing forms of constitutional change. The Progressive vision argued for adaptive constitutional change characterized by notions of an organic Constitution and expert management rooted in realist conceptions of law. These two competing visions for constitutional change correspond to competing visions of constitutionalism. These two American constitutions have remained distinct yet at the same time become deeply intertwined in the last 100 years. This conflict of visions continues to drive public debate over the Constitution and the courts and provides distinct options regarding constitutional change. In the end, this conflict of visions will determine the future direction of American constitutionalism.
