The Law of Bryceland. Essay on Rigid and Flexible Constitutions and on Parliamentary Sovereignty in the United Kingdom

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Constitution, Rule of Recognition, Sovereignty, Parliament, Constitutional Amendment.

The essay concerns the traditional distinction between rigid and flexible constitutions and argues that every written constitution is naturally rigid (and not only in those cases in which a power of constitutional amendment is expressly provided or in those cases in which the constitution itself specifically permits amendments by the ordinary legislative power). The essay then examines the important principle which represents the basis of the United Kingdom's flexible constitution: the sovereignty of Parliament.
