Welcome to the
The Constitution Society is a private non-profit organization
founded in 1994 and dedicated to research and public education on
the principles of constitutional republican government. It
publishes documentation, engages in litigation, and organizes
local citizens groups to work for reform. Click on the links

This site aims to eventually provide almost everything one needs to accurately decide what is and is not constitutional in most situations, and what applicable constitutions require one to do. It is for constitutional exegesis and decision support.
This organization was founded in response to the growing concern that noncompliance with the Constitution for the United States of America and most state constitutions is creating a crisis of legitimacy that threatens freedom and civil rights. Although the focus here is on government in the United States, coverage also includes the rest of the world, and private as well as public organizations.
We maintain that the principles of constitutional republicanism and constitutional design are universal, and applicable to all nations, although not well understood or upheld by most.
We also examine the related principles of federalism and nomocracy, the rule of law, of nomology, the science of law, and show how those principles are applicable to solving the fundamental problem of avoiding excessive or unbalanced concentrations of power.
