The Centre for Constitutional Studies is located in the Faculty of Law at the University of Alberta. It connects leading Canadian and international scholars, contributes to constitutional debate, and creates resources that educate the public about the Constitution. The Centre publishes a scholarly journal, Review of Constitutional Studies, and an online journal, Constitutional Forum, which promotes constitutional dialogue and debate. In addition to hosting national conferences and symposia to connect scholars and practicing lawyers, the Centre also reaches out to the public with a speaker series. It engages in public education and tries to help Canadians learn about the Constitution through plain-language articles on its website. The Centre believes that everyone should become more familiar with the Constitution – and understand why it is so important to our country.

The Centre for Constitutional Studies is a research centre of the University of Alberta. Its primary financial support comes from the Alberta Law Foundation, and the Centre gratefully acknowledges this continuing support.
