The article investigates legal classicism as a direction of legal science and practice in the United States. The study of the opposition of American law schools expands the understanding of regressive and progressive trends in the development of constitutional doctrine, modern understanding of civil rights and freedoms. Legal classicism (legal fundamentalism) in the United States was based on such principles as full legal protection of property rights, restriction of state interference in market relations in any form, disregard for labor and social law, legal protection of workers' interests and the rights of ethnic and racial minorities.
