Finding the text of constitutions

Websites for Jurisdictions

For those with the language skills, the websites of the publisher of the official gazette, official parliamentary websites or those of government ministries will often provide texts of constitutions and legislation.

The official websites of courts are the first place to look for at least key judgments.

Many countries have "citizens'" portals or websites too.
