ConSource, created byThe Constitutional Sources Project, is a resource you’ll want to know about if you’re doing constitutional law research. ConSource is a free, fully-indexed online library of constitutional sources. Released to the public on September 17, 2007 (Constitution Day), ConSource has quickly been adding documents and gaining fans. It has also garnered publicity since being used by attorneys (and possibly Supreme Court Justices) in the Supreme Court’s Heller decision to access important historical documents (see here).

ConSource also has J. Reuben Clark Law School ties. Lorianne Updike, Co-Founder, President & Executive Director of the Constitutional Sources Project, creator of, is a 2005 graduate of the J. Reuben Clark Law School (and a former classmate of mine).
