The Forum is published exclusively online. The most recent issue as well as past, archived issues can be accessed online.

The Centre for Constitutional Studies publishes the Constitutional Forum constitutionnel (Forum) free of charge through the University of Alberta Online Journal System (OJS). Articles published draw from many disciplines, including law, history, economics, political science, sociology and philosophy. The Forum’s publication schedule and the reasonably short turnaround time from submission to publication allow the Forum to provide insightful commentary on current topics of Canadian and international constitutional importance. Occasionally an issue of the Forum will be devoted to a single topic, such as the Quebec Secession Reference or the issue of the independence of provincial court judges.

The Centre for Constitutional Studies gratefully acknowledges the continuing support of the Alberta Law Foundation whose financial contribution helps make possible the publication of Constitutional Forum constitutionnel.

If you would like an email notification sent to you when a new issue of the Forum is published, please email the Centre to be added to our distribution list.

The Forum publishes comments and updates on issues of current constitutional interest. Submissions from a variety of disciplines are welcomed. Submissions should be in the range of 3,000 words.
