Question Description

Describe two (2) major functions of law in the U.S. Discuss the success and failure of law in fulfilling your two (2) chosen functions of law in our society. Provide two (2) examples of such success and failure to support your rationale

Final Answer

Law helps to operate society successfully, without law, society can’t exist in better way. Law helps to regulate the society and social behavior of the people.  Major couple of functions of law includes constitutions, common law, ordinance etc..

I would like to choose constitutions and ordinances.


It is law that overriding government law. Constitution include making a new branches of the government, giving or taking back any power to every branch.  It also helps to prevent governmental units from giving certain laws and power. It limits individual rights.

For example –

Whenever any society or company goes out of their social behavior or appealing government law, constitution can be passed to override that law. It helps to make a peace in society.


Ordinances are like contracts among the political parties, authorities with different states or countries. Mainly counties and municipalities are making these type of law that helps manage social behavior. Ordinances are granted through legislative delegation.

For example : If any state have CM with different parties, Ordinances can be passed between those two CMs. It will help to rule their own states this way.
