United Kingdom Law Research Guide

A guide to researching the law of the United Kingdom in Tarlton Law Library.

Constitution

The United Kingdom has no single document which is its constitution.  It is often said that the United Kingdom has an unwritten constitution.  It is more accurate to say that the United Kingdom has an uncodified constitution, since it derives from several kinds of sources.  For more information, see this recent book in the Law Library's collection.
