This class will give you an overview of the court systems in the United States, including what kinds of cases go to what kinds of courts, and how a case can end up at the United States Supreme Court.
We’ll also look at when and how a person or group of people can use the courts to challenge a law or practice that they believe to be unlawful. The goal of this class is to make it easier to follow press coverage of court cases, and to gain a better understanding of the role of courts in preserving rights. No LSAT required!
