While the Supreme Court is certainly a beacon of the judiciary system, it is not the only element in this branch of the U.S. government. In this text, the reader is immersed into the judicial branch at all levels, including state and circuit courts, courts of appeals, and their individual functions. By honing in on some of the pivotal cases tried by the judicial branch in the United States, such as Brown v. Board of Education and Roe v. Wade, this book establishes the worth and importance of judges, juries, and lawyers to our nation's past and present.
