This paper focused on judicial review in Jordan, and on the constitutional court, which was established after the 2011 constitutional amendments. The paper discussed the constitution’s provisions and relevant legislation relating to the Court and to its jurisdiction. It also discusses how the court’s composition, its current members’ backgrounds have impacted its ability to satisfy the Court’s mandate. The paper places the Jordanian court in regional context and compares it to its counterpart institutions in Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco. Finally, the paper analyzes the most critical decisions that the Court has issued thus far mainly by discussing the decisions’ political and social impact. The paper concludes that the courts with more assertiveness could be an important player in consolidating the role of law and overseeing legislative initiatives.
