Judicial activism in common law supreme courts edited by brice dickson covers nine different common law countries including australia canada india ireland israel new zealand south africa the united kingdom and the united states. The united states supreme court has received a lot of criticism for not keeping within constitutional bounds while practicing judicial activism as many people believe that instead the primary purpose of the supreme court should be to interpret laws in an act of judicial restraint.

This book examines the way in which judges in the top courts of nine different common law countries go about developing the law by devising new principles to allow themselves to be innovative and justice oriented and to ensure that human rights are universally protected
