Constitutional Law

About this Guide

This guide is for constitutional law research for resources available through the Library for students, faculty, and staff.

Get started with legal encyclopedias, either the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest in Westlaw or Halsbury's Laws of Canada in Lexis. Those resources also connect to relevant case law, legislation, and secondary sources.

Books are great resources for constitutional law information, from core titles including required readings, to loose-leafs, to leading expert commentary.

This guide also covers citation and links to online constitution resources, including the full text of the Charter.

Book a Research Help Appointment

Research help is available for students, faculty, and staff of TMU with legal research questions.

For one-on-one assistance in refining a legal research topic, finding legal information, and using databases and other resources, book a research appointment. Currently, all Law Library research help appointments are being conducted virtually through Zoom. Email the law librarians or book a time directly in their calendars during office hours:

Email: for general inquiries, please email for assistance with accessing or using legal information resources and one of the Law Library staff will respond to you.
