Function of a Constitution

The function of a Constitution
is to provide for the governmental powers, the legal system, and the rights of
citizens in the nation. The modern model for the proper function of
constitutions is provided by the
United States Constitution. Laws that are ultra vires, or
“beyond the powers,” may be found with officials given certain powers
under the Constitution but denied others, the latter of which they exercise.
Similarly, laws which are found to infringe on the rights of the citizens they
address will be declared null and void
 ab initio, or “from the beginning.”
