It is playing a vale of protector and working at its best with its intellect and time our Supreme Court has achieved a lot of popularity in the kind of bare law rigid interpreter made by the legislation. Now with its power of judicial review and judicial activism this court is doing a lot for social welfare. The doctrine of Judicial Review according to English Legal & Tradition means the power of court to examine the acts of subordinate bodies exercising legislative and administrative power with a view to ensuring their conformity to the act of parliament. An extensive review of this kind is exercised under the 'Rule of Law' and the legislative and administrative acts found inconsistent with the supreme legislation are declared 'ultra virus'.
