Question description

Our judicial branch of government was designed not only to serve as a check on the power of the executive and legislative branches but also to be the final arbiter on disputes among states and between the states and the federal government. One important arbitration tool utilized by the judicial branch is judicial review. Judicial review is one of the U.S. Constitution’s most provocative features as it plays an important role in shaping the laws that impact our society. For this discussion, complete the following:

  1. Define judicial review.
  2. Explain why the origins and legitimacy of judicial review are often called into question.
  3. Discuss whether the framers of the Constitution intended for the judiciary to have this role in the policy making process.
  4. Share your opinion on judicial review. Explain why you support or do not support judicial review.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Would like Henry again
