Definition of Constitution

Constitution means a document having a special legal sanctity which sets out the frame-work and the principal functions of the organs of the Government of a State and declares the principles governing the operation of those organs.

The term constitutional law has been defined by many writers. Hibbert defines Constitutional Law as “the body of rules governing the relation between the sovereign and his subjects and the different parts of the sovereign body”.

According to Dicey: “Constitutional law includes all rules which directly or indirectly affect the distribution or exercise of the sovereign power of the State. Hence it includes all rules which define the members of the sovereign power; all rules which regulate the relation of such members to each other or which determine the mode in which the sovereign power or the members thereof exercise their authority”.
