What is constitutional law

What is constitutional law ?

There is no hard and fast definition of constitutional law.  In the generally accepted use of the term it means the rule which regulates the structure of the principal organs of the government and their relationship to one another, and another, and determines their principal functions. The rules consist both of legal rules in the strict sense and of usages, commonly called conventions, which without being enacted are accepted as binding by all who are concerned in the government. Many of the rules and practices under which our system of government is worked are not part of the law in the sense that their violation may lead directly to proceedings in a court of law. Though The constitutional lawyer is concerned primarily with the legal aspects of the  government there is required for a constitutional lawyer some knowledge of the salient features of constitutional history and of the workings of our political institutions.
