CONSTITUTIONAL STUDIES
The Constitution Studies Center combines careful, objective scholarship into the original understanding of the Constitution with advocacy for human freedom under law. It produces books, issue papers, articles, and legal briefs reporting the results of its research. Since 2010, the Center has had enormous influence on constitutional law cases and commentary, but also on policy makers and grass roots activists. For example, the Center's research findings galvanized the massive and growing "Article V" movement to restore constitutional limits on the federal government.

Although the Constitution is not, strictly speaking, a common law document, it was written against the backdrop of common law.
