Summary

Working within the framework of law and politics, JUDICIAL PROCESS focuses on the dynamics of the courthouse as it provides readers with a working knowledge of the major structures and process that underlie the American judiciary. The structure of the courts, the nature of how the laws apply, and the procedures followed all have important consequences for the way the courts deliver justice. This book attempts to help the reader understand not only the legal rules, but also the assumptions underlying these rules, the history of how they evolved, and the goals they seek to achieve.
