It defines the scope of authority and relationships of the executive branch, judiciary branch, and the legislature. The area of individual human rights or civil liberties, as codified in the Bill of Rights, is also a part of the area of Constitutional law. Civil liberties concerns itself with the rights of the individual.

The Constitution is a document which touches on all of these matters. However the question of how the laws of the Constitution should be interpreted and applied to very specific and individual cases is a matter which is often open to debate.
