How much does an annual membership cost?

The “Regular Membership” is $95 USD and also includes (upon request) an online subscription to I·CON—the International Journal of Constitutional Law—for one year.

The “Discount Membership” is $50 USD and applies to scholars from non-OECD countries and students. The discount membership is valid for one year and gives you the same rights and privileges as our regular membership.

The “First Time Membership” is $30 USD. New members of the Society are eligible for this type of membership. The First Time Membership is valid for one year and gives you the same rights as our regular membership. We expect members who choose this type of membership to switch to one of the other kinds of membership after one year by the time of renewal.

If you are in a position to support the Society as one of our “patrons” we invite you to consider the “Patron of the Society” Membership. This membership is $150 USD. It is valid for one year and grants all the available membership rights, including participating in the Annual Conference and voting in the Council elections. We will publicly acknowledge all patrons of the Society.

We will also consider requests for fee waivers on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us at if you wish to pursue this option.
