The Constitution in the formal sense is the totality of all legal acts enacted in its particular form of constitutional legislation. This constitutional concept is based exclusively on the form of the legal norm, the content is not relevant. This is in contrast to the constitutional concept in the material sense. Here, the content of the legal norms is taken into account and includes all those legal provisions which, because of their substantive implications, deserve to be included in the constitution.
German: Verfassung (824)
