Constitutional law deals with the assignment or restriction of the powers and branches of a government. If you are asking whether something is constitutional, it's helpful if you provide reasons as to why you think it is or isn't constitutional.

Constitutional law governs the assignment and restriction of the powers of government.

A constitution will typically establish the branches of a government - the executive, judiciary, and legislature.

Beyond this, it may also state the means by which the constitution itself may be amended, and the means by which the government may legislate.
