I’m trying to learn for my Political Science class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
Read Article III of the US Constitution and Marbury v Madison. We will be discussing the role and authority of the judiciary.
Many argue we have problems with judicial activism.
For your forum post discuss:
1) What was the ruling in Marybury v Madison and how did it change the role of the judiciary?
2) What is judicial activism v judicial restraint? Do we have judicial activism in the courts today? If so, is it a problem and how can it be fixed?

Faculty may require assignments be submitted to Turnitin.com. Turnitin.com will automatically analyze a paper and report instances of potential plagiarism or overuse of quotes for the student to edit before submitting it for a grade.
