Constitutional law is what defines the relationship of the branches of a nation’s government – its executive, legislative and judiciary branches – and the relationships between its national (or federal) government and those of its subsections. In the United States of America these subsections are officially called “States,” “Counties,” and various identifications given to municipalities, such as “cities,” “towns,” “townships,” “boroughs,” etc. These relationships are defined by the Constitution of the United States, the various States’ Constitutions, and by County and municipal charters. A constitutional lawyer will need to understand these various defining documents, particularly the federal Constitution and the Constitution of the State(s) in which he practices. This will enable him to properly interpret the law in cases relating to the relationships between the national and subnational governing bodies, and the relationships between branches of government within either.
