The purpose of the study is to investigate the participation of society in the process of constitutional law-making and comprehension of this phenomenon in the modern science of law. The authors used a group of methods to achieve the goal of the study. These methods included classical general scientific methods (dialectical, formal-logical, analysis, synthesis, comparative) and private-scientific method of categorical analysis. Different approaches to the definition of the essence and types of constitutional law-making are disclosed and analyzed. The article expresses the opinion that the scope of the category of “constitutional law-making” is artificially narrowed. Authors examined the correspondence of the popular conception of law-making in general and the conception of constitutional law-making in particular to the objectives of creating a harmonious system of law.  New approaches to the definition of the essence of constitutional law-making are formulated and the conclusion about the need for modernization of the concept of constitutional law-making is made. The authors suggest that the analysis of the content of constitutional-legal phenomena requires the use of different methodologies.
