Constitutional review

Constitutional review, or constitutionality review or constitutional control, is the evaluation, in some countries, of the constitutionality of the laws. It's supposed to be a system of preventing violation of the rights granted by the constitution, assuring its efficacy, their stability and preservation. [1]

Distinction

There are very specific situations in which the constitutional review differs from common law to civil law, as well as the judicial review in general. [2]
