    Think I've stuffed this exam but hey ho one of them had to go wrong eventually

    I think the limitations was only one sided because it was "assess" the points you make for limits of the court, at least that's what I did anyway

    The question was assess the limitations, so I just explained what they are and how effective they are. An example is that they're limited by checks from the President as he appoints the members, but this isn't effective because once they're appointed they sit for life and are not accountable to him. An example of this is Souter who was appointed by George H.W. Bush for his Conservative views on abortion but he turned out to be one of it's most liberal members - voter for abortion in Planned Parenthood v Casey.

    I wrote about the 16th amendment (pollock), presidential influence (affordable care act cases), appellate court (obergefell being referred), and public opinion (mcdonald v chicago)

    Mostly wrote about the judiciary and just gave loads of cases,briefly mentioned the president and congress and how there is equal representation in the senate.
    So arguing that they dont protect states rights:
    President has made secret deals without state or congressional consent.
    Congress-bills take too long and not many passed through concerning states rights and legislation.
    Judiciary:
    Lee vs Weisman
    Roe Vs Wade
    Do protect rights:
    Judiciary:Texas vs Johnson (couldnt remember the name in the exam though)
    Furman vs Georgia
    Brown vs Topeka
    Gonzalles vs Carhart
    Congress equal representation in the senate
    President-elected by the electoral college
    Feel like I messed up though as i didnt divide it equally,literally 2/3 was about the judiciary.
    What did you put?
    I Basically did what you did we have all the similar cases I also spoke about how the 3 branches must work together to protect constitutional rights & I also added the increase threat of terrorism meant that in recent years they were not able to protect constitutional rights, but I no idea on how it went.
    For the executive branch i spoke out his executive actions Childhood Deferred Action (CDA) and the the dream act but also Obama executive order for gun, that kinda undermined the 2nd amendment I cant remember much else , and for congress i spoke out the recent cases of stand your ground laws and the black lives matter and linked it back to the question


    but truthfully it was bound to be a little unbalanced as the supreme courts main role would be to interpret the law where was the other branches is more executing laws and making laws

    If u look at 2010 when the A* was introduced they were around 60 possibly 58 but since then they have gradually risen and have remained at 68,69 for A* and 62 for an A I doubt they would be lowerer than that, but it they r 64,65 then that would be a huge benefit but more likely to 68,69 for an A*
