    :lol:

    I'm taking a 3 day seminar regarding teaching civics. http://www.ilciviced.org/SummerInst_09.pdf

    Actually it's just the break I needed from trying to clean out my home, but I really 'hate' judicial review. Our group took pity on the other, as they had too many 'elementary teachers', i.e. grades 3-5, so we let them take the question for Federalists v. Anti-Federalists.

    Anyhow if anyone, lawyer or just constitutionally driven has some ideas, post them. Here's the framework:

    What is the power of judicial review and how was it established in the United States?
    • Is the power of the Supreme Court to overrule the will of a congressional majority consistent with the principle of representative government? Why or why not?
    • If the Supreme Court did not have this power, in what other way could the rights of minorities be protected from the majority? Take and defend a position on which way you think the right of minorities should be protected.

    Definition of judicial review:



    Establishment of Judicial review:




    Consistent with the principle of representative government?



    Why or why not?



    What other way could the right of minorities be protected from the majority?


    Groups position on how rights of the minority should be protected:

    Seriously, this is High School civics stuff. Marbury vs. Madison? Ring a bell? "Hate" judicial review? It's one of the most important checks and balances. The legislative branch writes the laws, the judicial interprets and maintains Constitutional integrity, and the Executive enforces. If you hate judicial review I'd like to know how you feel about jury nullification.

    actually one may argue that it's the very beginning of legislating from the bench. Why do I get the idea you wouldn't agree with that?
