Abstract and Keywords

This article presents an analysis of comparative constitutional law. This study compares some elements of the development of constitutional scholarship in Europe. The emerging European constitutional scholarship as a form of comparative constitutional law scholarship cannot be understood without looking at the traditions of scholarship at the level of national constitutional law. In the continent, the decisive form of scholarship can be described as one of doctrinal constructivism. Doctrinal constructivism represents a singular combination of theory and practice, and stresses the practical importance of constitutional scholarship in many European countries.

Keywords: comparative law, constitutional regimes, constitutional European scholarship, doctrinal constructivism, United States, constitutional adjudication
