3 rd essay – explaining what the different approaches – different ideological leanings – a court case or two to support your explanation The essay for the 3rd exam deals with what has to be taken into consideration when Justices of the US Supreme Court are being selected. What I am talking about is whether they see themselves as Judicial Activists, Judicial Self-Restraintists, or perhaps Judicial Restorationists. What I will be looking for is a good grasp of what this all means and how court cases have been affected by them . A good essay will utilize the court cases. Finally, you will be asked your opinion on which position you favor and why. Supreme Court justices are appointed for life and, as saw in the case of Marbury v. Madison, Presidents want to place individuals on the courts especially the US Supreme Court who think like them. So, ideology plays a role but how the justice’s view how the law should be applied is also a major consideration. There are three types of thinking, Judicial Activism, Judicial Self-Restraint, and Judicial Restoration.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
