Request Description

In the study of constitutional law, there are two perspectives that are used to describe the actions of judges. These terms are judicial activism and judicial restraint. Judicial activism refers to court eras in which judges apply a broad interpretation of the U.S. Constitution and actually establish policies and guidelines for law enforcement. Judicial restraint, on the other hand, refers to court eras in which judges rule only on the case before them and do not offer any policy or guidelines for law enforcement. Judicial restraint is best seen where there is a strict or narrow interpretation of the Constitution and a close adherence to previous decisions.

Prepare an essay on which of these two perspectives has served the United States best. Please use any U.S. Supreme Court landmark case(s) to support you argument, as well as the following items:

  • Identify specific examples in the language of the text to support your position.
  • Examine some of the arguments used by the majority and minority opinions in the cases.
  • Include any philosophical underpinning that may have influenced the thinking of the framers of the U.S. Constitution.
  • Include the current advantages or disadvantages found in the decisions of the case(s) you selected.
  • Please cite any current public opinion and thinking on these cases to support your argument where possible.
