With reference to the source, and your own knowlege, explain judicinal review and its importance      (10 marks) 

Judicinal review is when judges review any decision by the state in relation to it's citizens. It is put into practice when a citizen finds that they have not been treated fairly or their rights have been abused in some away. 

As seen in the source, judicinal review is conducted by the supreme court and is can challenge decisions made by public law capacity.
