  1. constitutional

    The widely divergent senses in which the word radical is used, by which it can be at some time interchanged with any word in the above list, are all formed upon the one primary sense of having to do with or proceeding from the root (Latin radix); a radical difference is one that springs from the root, and is thus constitutional, essential, fundamental, organic, original; a radical change is one that does not stop at the surface, but reaches down to the very root, and is entire, thorough, total; since the majority find superficial treatment of any matter the easiest and most comfortable, radical measures, which strike at the root of evil or need, are apt to be looked upon as extreme.

    Synonyms:
    complete, entire, essential, extreme, fundamental, ingrained, innate, native, natural, organic, original, perfect, positive, primitive, radical, thorough, thoroughgoing, total

    Antonyms:
    conservative, inadequate, incomplete, moderate, palliative, partial, slight, superficial, tentative, trial

How to use constitutional in a sentence?

  1. Steve Vladeck:

    Although this is a very technical ruling, its basic gist is that state supreme courts can’t rely upon novel state procedural rules to prevent state prisoners from bringing federal constitutional claims, (John) Cruz may or may not prevail on his federal claim – that he had a right to have the jury know that a life sentence would be without parole. But he now gets to make that argument in the first place.

  2. Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen:

    Although the storming of the Capitol was a tragic episode in our nation's history, I take some comfort in the resilience of our institutions in the face of such an attack, as demonstrated by Congress's ability to reconvene and fulfill its constitutional duties just hours after the breach.

  3. President Trump:

    Even as universities have received billions and billions of dollars from taxpayers, many have become increasingly hostile to free speech and to the First Amendment, we will not stand idly by and allow public institutions to violate their students constitutional rights. If a college or university doesnt allow you to speak, we will not give them money. Its very simple.

  4. Judge McFarlane:

    I have held that, because of the constitutional position of the Sovereign, it is appropriate to have a special practice in relation to royal wills, there is a need to enhance the protection afforded to truly private aspects of the lives of this limited group of individuals in order to maintain the dignity of the Sovereign and close members of her family.

  5. Donald Trump:

    The U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion Monday vacating former Gov. Bob McDonnell’s corruption convictionsand sent it back to the lower appeals court. ‘In addition to being inconsistent with both text and precedent, the Government’s expansive interpretation of ‘official act’ would raise significant constitutional concerns,’according to the unanimous opinion.‘Because the jury was not correctly instructed on the meaning of ‘official act,’ it may have convicted Governor McDonnell for conduct that is not unlawful.’ SCOTUSblog’s Amy Howe posted in a live chat on the opinion: ‘Very favorable to the governor but not over.’.
