The text first reviews the judicial function, the role and purpose of law, sources of law, the various types of law, and the American court system structure and operations, both state and federal.

Very informational I thought this book would be hard to read but it’s really not. It’s written in normal language that’s easy to understand and gets the points across effectively. This is the perfect book to learn about how the courts system runs.

Miriam Zamora says:

Very good condition Aside from a minor fold on the cover book is practically intact. Great quality. No notes or writing on at all.
