The study of constitutional law at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law combines a wide range of approaches, including theory, history, doctrine and practice.

Constitutional law provides one of the basic components of every lawyer's training and becomes the foundation of many other law school courses. The first year course focuses on the development of Canadian federalism, the Charter and Aboriginal issues. Students in upper years can choose from a rich array of elective courses that offer the opportunity for more intensive study of substantive issues (such as aboriginal rights, freedom of expression and equality), practice (such as Advanced Criminal Evidence and Constitutional Litigation) as well as theory and history.

The course offerings in constitutional law are complemented by the Constitutional Roundtable.  Organized by Professor Lorraine Weinrib, the Roundtable provides an important forum for Canadian and foreign scholars, policy-makers, and practitioners to come to the Faculty to examine a wide array of constitutional questions from  inter-disciplinary, comparative, theoretical and practice perspectives.
