The Judiciary

The Founding Fathers installed three equal branches of government to serve as checks and balances to one another. The legislative branch writes the law, the executive branch enacts it, and the judicial branch interprets and enforces the law. But the role of the courts is too often forgotten, and abuses of power go unnoticed. This course is designed to shine a light on this neglected function of government, exposing its strengths as well as its weaknesses.
