CONSTITUTIONAL LAW

 

The United States of America is blessed with a written Constitution and Bill of Rights which, in principle, are devoted to the protection of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. 

Here’s my working definition of “constitutional law” (derived from the late Professor Edward S. Corwin):

1.  A body of principles,

2.  Derived from the interpretation or application,

3.  By a high court [e.g. the Supreme Court of the United States],

4.  Of a written constitutional document,

5.  In the course of disposing of cases,

6.  In which the validity of some act of governmental power,

7.  National, state or local,

8.  Has been challenged,

9.  In relation to the constitutional document.

In other words, "constitutional law" results from comparing government action against what the people of the United States have authorized it to do.

Unfortunately, for several generations there has been little public education about our Constitution, and the mostly indefensible manner in which it has been applied by lower courts and interpreted by the Supreme Court of the United States.

To provide an antidote to the disease which has come to afflict the study of constitutional law, I am providing information for laypersons who want to learn what the Constitution of the United States of America was intended to mean, what has become of it, and how its early promise can again be attained.
