The Legal Information Institute Releases Its Very Own Constitution Annotated

The Legal Information Institute (LII) has published the very first Constitution Annotated available to the public online. LII's Constitution Annotated is a web-based interpretation of the Congressional Research Service's publication by the same name. Unlike that lengthy work, LII's Constitution Annotated is navigable, accessible, hyperlinked and searchable, giving viewers easy access to historical information and case law that shape the modern understanding of each constitutional provision. It also links to relevant U.S. Code and federal regulations. LII's Constitution Annotated would be a great place to start research on any aspect of constitutional law. It is available at https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution-conan.
