Best Answer

The basic and supreme law of the land is the Constitution of the United States of America. It consists of 7 articles, which were drafted by the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia, and 27 amendments. More than 200 years old, this document is the oldest written constitution of a national state in use anywhere in the world today. (The oldest written constitution of any sort in use today is the Massachusetts state constitution of 1780.) Most of the national constitutions around the world have existed only since about 1970.
