Constitutional law is a body of law which defines the role, powers, and structure of different entities within a state , namely, the executive , the parliament or legislature , and the judiciary ; as well as the basic rights of citizens and, in federal countries such as the United States and Canada , the relationship between the central government and state, provincial, or territorial governments.
Not all nation states have codified constitutions , though all such states have a jus commune , or law of the land, that may consist of a variety of imperative and consensual rules. These may include customary law , conventions , statutory law , judge-made law , or international rules and norms. Constitutional law deals with the fundamental principles by which the government exercises its authority.
In some instances, these principles grant specific powers to the government, such as the power to tax and spend for the welfare of the population. Other times, constitutional principles act to place limits on what the government can do, such as prohibiting the arrest of an individual without sufficient cause. In most nations, such as the United States , India , and Singapore , constitutional law is based on the text of a document ratified at the time the nation came into being.
Other constitutions, notably that of the United Kingdom ,   rely heavily on unwritten rules known as constitutional conventions ; their status within constitutional law varies, and the terms of conventions are in some cases strongly contested. Constitutional laws can be considered second order rule making or rules about making rules to exercise power.
It governs the relationships between the judiciary, the legislature and the executive with the bodies under its authority. One of the key tasks of constitutions within this context is to indicate hierarchies and relationships of power. For example, in a unitary state , the constitution will vest ultimate authority in one central administration and legislature , and judiciary , though there is often a delegation of power or authority to local or municipal authorities.
When a constitution establishes a federal state , it will identify the several levels of government coexisting with exclusive or shared areas of jurisdiction over lawmaking, application and enforcement. Some federal states, most notably the United States, have separate and parallel federal and state judiciaries, with each having its own hierarchy of courts with a supreme court for each state.
India , on the other hand, has one judiciary divided into district courts, high courts, and the Supreme Court of India. Human rights or civil liberties form a crucial part of a country's constitution and uphold the rights of the individual against the state. Most jurisdictions, like the United States and France , have a codified constitution, with a bill of rights. A recent example is the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union which was intended to be included in the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe , that failed to be ratified.
These are intended to ensure basic political, social and economic standards that a nation state, or intergovernmental body is obliged to provide to its citizens but many do include its governments.
Some countries like the United Kingdom have no entrenched document setting out fundamental rights; in those jurisdictions the constitution is composed of statute , case law and convention. A case named Entick v. Carrington  is a constitutional principle deriving from the common law. John Entick 's house was searched and ransacked by Sherriff Carrington. Carrington argued that a warrant from a Government minister, the Earl of Halifax was valid authority, even though there was no statutory provision or court order for it.
The court, led by Lord Camden stated that,. That right is preserved sacred and incommunicable in all instances, where it has not been taken away or abridged by some public law for the good of the whole.
By the laws of England, every invasion of private property, be it ever so minute, is a trespass If no excuse can be found or produced, the silence of the books is an authority against the defendant, and the plaintiff must have judgment.
The common law and the civil law jurisdictions do not share the same constitutional law underpinnings. Common law nations, such as those in the Commonwealth as well as the United States, derive their legal systems from that of the United Kingdom, and as such place emphasis on judicial precedent,     whereby consequential court rulings especially those by higher courts are a source of law.
Civil law jurisdictions, on the other hand, place less emphasis on judicial review and only the parliament or legislature has the power to effect law. As a result, the structure of the judiciary differs significantly between the two, with common law judiciaries being adversarial and civil law judiciaries being inquisitorial. Common law judicatures consequently separate the judiciary from the prosecution,    thereby establishing the courts as completely independent from both the legislature and law enforcement.
Human rights law in these countries is as a result, largely built on legal precedent in the courts' interpretation of constitutional law, whereas that of civil law countries is almost exclusively composed of codified law, constitutional or otherwise. Another main function of constitutions may be to describe the procedure by which parliaments may legislate. For instance, special majorities may be required to alter the constitution.
In bicameral legislatures, there may be a process laid out for second or third readings of bills before a new law can enter into force. Alternatively, there may further be requirements for maximum terms that a government can keep power before holding an election. Constitutional law is a major focus of legal studies and research. For example, most law students in the United States are required to take a class in Constitutional Law during their first year, and several law journals are devoted to the discussion of constitutional issues.
The doctrine of the rule of law dictates that government must be conducted according to law. This was first established by British legal theorist A. Dicey identified three essential elements of the British Constitution which were indicative of the rule of law:. The first is that the regular law is supreme over arbitrary and discretionary powers. The second is that all men are to stand equal in the eyes of the law.
The third is that the general ideas and principles that the constitution supports arise directly from the judgements and precedents issued by the judiciary. The Separation of Powers is often regarded as a second limb functioning alongside the Rule of Law to curb the powers of the Government. In many modern nation states, power is divided and vested into three branches of government: The Legislature , the Executive and the Judiciary.
We call it the horizontal separation of powers. The first and the second are harmonised in traditional Westminster forms of government. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Body of law. For other uses, see Constitutional law disambiguation.

Burk PDF. Recent American patent scholarship has begun to explore the intersection of the patent system and guarantees of expressive freedom, noting that patents may impinge on the First Amendment to the Federal Constitution and chill or prohibit protected speech. But guarantees of expressive freedom are not limited to the Federal Constitution; they are also found in state constitutional provisions, some of which offer broader protection than that guaranteed in the First Amendment. In this essay I examine the relationship between federally issued patents and the guarantees of expressive freedom found in state constitutions. State constitutions vary in their wording and interpretation, so my primary focus will be on those states that have viewed their state constitutional provisions as extending beyond the protections offered by the federal First Amendment.
The supremacy of the people through their elected representatives is recognized in Article I, which creates a Congress consisting of a Senate and a House of Representatives. The Constitution assigned to Congress responsibility for organizing the executive and judicial branches, raising revenue, declaring war, and making all laws necessary for executing these powers. The president is permitted to veto specific legislative acts, but Congress has the authority to override presidential vetoes by two-thirds majorities of both houses. The Constitution also provides that the Senate advise and consent on key executive and judicial appointments and on the approval for ratification of treaties. For over two centuries the Constitution has remained in force because its framers successfully separated and balanced governmental powers to safeguard the interests of majority rule and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the federal and state governments.

The Law of Nations and the United States Constitution offers anyone interested in constitutional governance in the United States a new lens through which to analyze the role of customary international law in U. The book explains that the law of nations has never interacted with the Constitution in any single overarching way. Rather, the Constitution was designed to interact in distinct ways with each of the three traditional branches of the law of nations known to the founders—namely, the law merchant, the law of state-state relations, and the law maritime. By disaggregating how diff By disaggregating how different parts of the Constitution interact with different kinds of customary international law, the book provides a detailed account of historical understandings and judicial precedent that will help judges and scholars more readily identify and resolve constitutional questions involving customary international law today.

ГЛАВА 50 Фил Чатрукьян остановился в нескольких ярдах от корпуса ТРАНСТЕКСТА, там, где на полу белыми буквами было выведено: НИЖНИЕ ЭТАЖИ ШИФРОВАЛЬНОГО ОТДЕЛА ВХОД ТОЛЬКО ДЛЯ ЛИЦ СО СПЕЦИАЛЬНЫМ ДОПУСКОМ Чатрукьян отлично знал, что к этим лицам не принадлежит. Бросив быстрый взгляд на кабинет Стратмора, он убедился, что шторы по-прежнему задернуты. Сьюзан Флетчер минуту назад прошествовала в туалет, поэтому она ему тоже не помеха.
Для него все шифры выглядят одинаково, независимо от алгоритма, на основе которого созданы. - Не понимаю, - сказала. - Мы же говорим не о реверсии какой-либо сложной функции, а о грубой силе. PGP, Lucifer, DSA - не важно. Алгоритм создает шифр, который кажется абсолютно стойким, а ТРАНСТЕКСТ перебирает все варианты, пока не находит ключ.
По профессиональной привычке поправив съехавший набок узел галстука, он повернулся к писсуару. Он подумал, дома ли Сьюзан. Куда она могла уйти. Неужели уехала без меня в Стоун-Мэнор. - Эй! - услышал он за спиной сердитый женский голос и чуть не подпрыгнул от неожиданности. - Я… я… прошу прощения, - заикаясь, сказал Беккер и застегнул молнию на брюках.
at 43, 71 (declaring that. “[t]he Constitution's allocation of the [recognition and other foreign affairs] powers to the political branches required courts (and states) to.
Сьюзан встретилась с ним взглядом и прикусила губу. - Ничего, - выдавила. Но это было не. Терминал Хейла ярко светился.
Сотрудникам службы безопасности платили за их техническое мастерство… а также за чутье. Действуй, объясняться будешь. Чатрукьян знал, что ему делать.
Каждое послание состояло из числа букв, равного полному квадрату, - шестнадцати, двадцати пяти, ста - в зависимости оттого, какой объем информации нужно было передать. Цезарь тайно объяснил офицерам, что по получении этого якобы случайного набора букв они должны записать текст таким образом, чтобы он составил квадрат. Тогда, при чтении сверху вниз, перед глазами магически возникало тайное послание. С течением времени этот метод преобразования текста был взят на вооружение многими другими и модифицирован, с тем чтобы его труднее было прочитать. Кульминация развития докомпьютерного шифрования пришлась на время Второй мировой войны.
Должен быть другой выход. - Да, - в сердцах бросил Джабба. - Шифр-убийца.
Два выстрела в спину, схватить кольцо и исчезнуть. Самая большая стоянка такси в Севилье находилась всего в одном квартале от Матеус-Гаго. Рука Халохота потянулась к пистолету. Adios, Senor Becker… La sangre de Cristo, la сора de la salvacion.
Если Беккер окажется там, Халохот сразу же выстрелит. Если нет, он войдет и будет двигаться на восток, держа в поле зрения правый угол, единственное место, где мог находиться Беккер. Он улыбнулся.
Он не скрывал от нанимателей того, что случилось с ним во время службы в морской пехоте, и стремился завоевать их расположение, предлагая работать без оплаты в течение месяца, чтобы они узнали ему цену. В желающих принять его на работу не было недостатка, а увидав, что он может творить на компьютере, они уже не хотели его отпускать. Профессионализм Хейла достиг высокого уровня, и у него появились знакомые среди интернет-пользователей по всему миру. Он был представителем новой породы киберпсихов и общался с такими же ненормальными в других странах, посещая непристойные сайты и просиживая в европейских чатах.
