The Origins and Evolution of Judicial Review: How Did We Get Here?

The federal courts' power of judicial review is nowhere mentioned in the Constitution. So, how did this branch of government acquire the power to review acts passed by Congress and actions taken by the executive branch in order to determine whether those acts or actions violate the Constitution? How has the Supreme Court been able to enforce those decisions against another branch of government? And how have major Supreme Court decisions expanded this power in the last 220 years, since the seminal case of Marbury v. Madison? Join our Constitution Day discussion to find out!
