It is the purpose of this chapter to study the constitutional law of Provincial America, to examine the colonial charters noting especially those provisions relating to the legislative power of the colony and the requirement of colonial representatives by the Crown that all laws be transmitted to England where they were subject to examination by the English government and if deemed objectionable to a summary of disallowance; to study the administrative bodies to whom have been assigned the task of reviewing colonial legislation, their method of disallowance and what they sought to accomplish by the confirmation or rejection of colonial laws; to grasp the English theory of sovereign supremacy and lastly to inquire whether the British theory of colonial government is analogous to the constitutional doctrine of the United States Supreme Court for colonial government under the United States Constitution.
