The Center for Constitutional Governance (CCG) at Columbia Law School is a nonpartisan legal and policy organization devoted to the study of constitutional structure and authority. CCG explores these issues in a range of policy areas, including health care, civil rights, immigration, financial regulation, and national security. CCG’s work is especially timely now, when the contours of federal, state, and private sector authority, and the role of government itself, are at the forefront of national debate.

Our Mission

A central goal of CCG is to provide a forum where academics, government officials, practitioners, students, and others can engage with the major constitutional and governance issues of the day.
