Constitutional Commentary

Constitutional Commentary was founded in 1984 and is one of the few faculty-edited law journals in the country. It enjoys a wide following among legal scholars, historians, political scientists and others interested in constitutional law and history. Part of its popularity is due to the editors’ preference for “shorter and less ponderous articles” as opposed to the more lengthy and heavily footnoted articles found in traditional law reviews.

The University of Minnesota Law School publishes Constitutional Commentary three times a year. Subscription: 1 year, $34.00 (U.S.); $42 (International); single copies of issues in the current volume, $14.00. Subscriptions are automatically renewed upon expiration unless a request for discontinuance is received.

Back issues and volumes are available from:
