Judicial Learning Center: How Courts Work
Six informational and easy-to-understand resources detail how the United States’ courts work. The collection provides young legal scholars with a detailed overview of the differences between civil and criminal trials, outlines the role of the judge and the jury, and discusses different types of judges and juries that are common in the United States. Students learn about the trial process from opening statements to the final verdict, how appeals courts are different from trial courts. Also, they examine the appeals process from the trial court to the Supreme Court and the different types of opinions the Supreme Court delivers. It's a very judicious collection.
