In the United States, the federal Bill of Rights and the federal 14th Amendment recognize constitutionally protected Due Process rights which, if enforced, are a failsafe in favor of the individual and his "life, liberty, or property" (see 5th amendment) as against the rights of State and Federal governments.
Due Process properly includes all substantial rights protected by the Procedures of English Courts of Law or Equity when the federal Bill of Rights was adopted. (Developments in procedure between 1606 and 1789 will be disputable in the United States because of the differing ways the States received the statutes and common law of England. See Benson's "Reception of the Common Law in Missouri".)
English common law procedure includes the right to Jury Nullification whenever the Jury correctly finds an Act of a Legislature to be unconstitutional. The equivalent of the US constitution in British Commonwealth countries includes individual rights admitted in the Coronation Oath, Magna Carta, Bill of Rights, etc. (Note that British Commonwealth officials take their oath of office under the Coronation Oath, because the Crown is the monarch and his successors in a sovereign capacity under his coronation oath.)
Due Process rights also include individual procedural rights the governments admit via statutes passed subsequent to the ratification of the Bill of Rights, for example arising under the Administrative Procedures Act (1946), the Federal Register Act (1935), and the restrictions on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure recognized by the Rules Enabling Act (1934).
Any time a judiciary adopts procedural rules which have the effect of violating substantial due process rights, the said rules should ideally be disputed by the injured parties in courts, administrative hearings, and before legislators.
Tragically, with the passage of time, the judiciaries have broadly acquiesced to applying Public Policy statements that work against private rights, such as Bar Association policies, unwritten corporate bylaws, unreasonable electronic user access policies, etc.
