    Describe whether the Judiciary in the United Kingdom should be entitled to strike down Acts of Parliament under extreme circumstances.

    Can someone give me some tips of what topics to cover. I have covered human rights and covered parliamentary supremacy under this.
    Thanks.

    I'd talk about partially elected parliament v appointed judiciary in a democratic system.

    But maybe that comes under Parliamentary Supremacy.

    Perhaps raise the question as to what an 'extreme circumstance' would be. Currently they can tell Parliament whether an Act is incompatible with the ECHR.

    Judges are unelected too, so should they have such a big 'right'?

    You ought to look at EC legislation (where judges will disapply English law), and at the dicta in R (AG) v Jackson.

    Suggest you read "Parliamentary Sovereignty under the new constitutional hypothesis", Jeffrey Jowell, Public Law, 2006, P562 (I think).
