In 1803, the Supreme Court of the United States under the leadership of Chief Justice John Marshall, former Secretary of State under President John Adams, presided over the Marbury v Madison case and handed down its decision which brought the concept of Judicial Review long practiced at the State level to the Federal level. This case established the concept of Judicial Review at the Federal level for the first time and remains a Starre Decisis in American Jurisprudence to this day.
ASSIGNED PAPER TOPIC
Analyze the concept of Judicial Review at the Federal level and the crucial role played by Chief Justice John Marshall in the formulation of this concept. Ensure that your analysis first place this case in its proper social, historical, and political context, that it systematically engages the politics of the Federalist and Anti-Federalist sentiments of the time, and that it clearly and systematically demonstrates the impact this case continues to have on American Jurisprudence to this day.
EXAMPLE OF A MUCH LONGER VERSION OF PAPER OF SAME TOPIC FOR REVIEW
Below is an example of a much longer version of same topic for your review. I am NOT touting it as the best paper ever! Rather, am providing it as an example of an assignment albeit a much longer version although you are being asked to write a shorter paper of 300 WORDS. Please read it and learn something from it.
EXAMPLE OF A CRITICAL, ANALYTICAL, RESEARCH PAPER (long version)
Topic: Analyze the concept of Judicial Review at the Federal level and the crucial role played by then Chief Justice John Marshall in the formulation of this concept in the1803 Starre Decisis case of Marbury v Madison. Ensure that your analysis is not a mere rehearsal of that Starre Decisis but rather a critical, systematic and coherent examination of the politics of that time and how that politics was played out at the judiciary level between the Federalists and anti-Federalists.
(PLEASE NOTE: The example below is of a much longer paper than the one assigned for you to write. This example is provided for you to get a sense of a longer paper on the SAME topic even though you are asked to write a much shorter paper –300 words ONLY)
