Constitutional Law

Ah, the Constitution … that crinkly old parchment with those fancy letters spelling out some grand ideas. It gives us verbal shields such as, “that’s unconstitutional!” and “do you have a warrant?” It outlaws monarchies and hobbles authoritarianism by separating governmental powers into the three branches –  executive, legislative, and judicial – and giving each branch some authority to check the powers of the others. The study of Con Law is intriguing; its practice is both challenging and deeply meaningful precisely because of the significance of the panoply of human rights that are either compromised or protected.

No website dedicated to teaching people about the law would be complete without at least some posts about the U.S. Constitution.
