Examine the role of "the judiciary" as one of the three branches of American government with former Oregon Supreme Court Justice Susan M. Leeson and historian Scott Casper, Ph.D. A handful of the core issues covered in this seminar include: creation of the judicial branch and its constitutional ties to the other branches of government; the relationship between the federal judiciary and state judicial systems; the relationship between the Supreme Court and its co-equal branches in the national government; the doctrine of judicial review; and contemporary issues involving the role of federal courts in the American political system.
