Web Site of the Week: How Courts Work

The American Bar Association (ABA) hosts an excellent web page designed to detail the intricacies of how courts in America actually work. Here readers will find four informative sections, including information about Courts and Legal Procedure, Steps in a Trial, The Human Side of Being a Judge, and Mediation. Within each section, subsections further elucidate the topic. For instance, under the Steps in a Trial section, over two dozen subcategories tell the complex story of how a case moves through the courts, including a Diagram of How a Case Moves Through the Courts, and short narratives concerning Pleadings, Plea Bargaining, Judgment, Sentencing, and much more. For educators teaching law to high school and undergraduate students, or for anyone who would like to better understand the American legal system, this site will provide hours of informative reading.
