    Judicial review is the doctrine under which legislative and executive actions are subject to review by the judiciary. A specific court with judicial review power must annul the acts of the state when it finds them incompatible with a higher authority. Judicial review is an example of check and balances in a modern governmental system. This principle is interpreted differently in different jurisdictions, which also have differing views on the different hierarchy of governmental norms. As a result, the procedure and scope of judicial review differs from country to country and state to state.
