The United States is a nation built on laws, and the interpretation and application of these laws is the primary responsibility of the judicial branch of government. Join our host and discover why the United States has two different court systems: the federal court system, which spans the whole country, and the state court systems, in which individual states have their own courts. Understand the layers of each system and how a specific case can make its way to the United States Supreme Court, the highest court in the land. Take a fascinating look at key U.S. Supreme Court decisions, like Marbury vs. Madison, and learn how this case in particular clearly established the role of the judicial branch in the American system of checks and balances. Part of the United States Government DVD Series. A teacher's guide is included and is available online.

Only available in the US.
