Cornell’s Legal Information Institute Publishes Enhanced US Constitution Annotated

The Legal Information Institute (LII) at Cornell University has published the Enhanced Constitution Annotated, a web version of the non-partisan Congressional Research Service’s Constitution Annotated (a document that is in the hundreds of pages).

As per an explanatory note:
"The content of the U.S. Constitution Annotated was prepared by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) at the Library of Congress, and published electronically in plaintext and PDF by the Government Printing Office. Dating back to 1911, the initial online annotations were published in 1992."
"This edition is a hypertext interpretation of the CRS text, updated to the currently published version. It links to Supreme Court opinions, the U.S. Code, and the Code of Federal Regulations, as well as enhancing navigation through linked footnotes and tables of contents."
LII, based at the Cornell Law School in Ithaca, New York, was founded in 1992 with the goal of making American legal materials freely available on the Internet.
