An important new resource for those interested in constitutions is now freely available online. Constitute is a website that contains the constitutional texts of just about all modern states. They can be searched by country or topic.
The front page of the site tells us:
Constitute allows you to interact with the world’s constitutions in a few different ways.

WHICH CONSTITUTIONS ARE REPRESENTED IN CONSTITUTE?
Currently Constitute has every constitution that was in force in September of 2013 for every independent state in the world. Soon we will include data and text for a version of every available constitution ever written since 1789.
WHO IS BEHIND CONSTITUTE?
Constitute was developed by the Comparative Constitutions Project. It was seeded with a grant from Google Ideas to the University of Texas at Austin, with additional financial support from the Indigo Trust and IC2. Engineering and web-design support are provided by Psycle and the Miranker Lab at the University of Texas
The following organizations have made important investments in the Comparative Constitutions Project since 2005: the National Science Foundation (SES 0648288), the Cline Center for Democracy, the University of Texas, the University of Chicago, and the Constitution Unit at University College London.
