Understanding the U.S. Court System: PowerPoint Presentation

The court system in the United States has a long history. The court system influenced the structure of the courts today and the roles of the major participants in the court process.

For this assignment, create a PowerPoint to illustrate various aspects of the court system and process. Be creative with the visuals—you may create tables, videos, diagrams, graphics, images, or any other types of visuals you would like. You should use a balance of text and images – remember PowerPoint presentations are image driven! Format any text, information, images, or graphics used from outside sources in the visuals consistent with APA guidelines.

Create a 8- to 10 slide PowerPoint presentation, that addresses the following topics:

•Major historical developments of the U.S. courts

•Five (5) sources of law in the U.S.

•Dual court system of the United States

•Policymaking in State Courts: cite a state court decision that had an impact on U.S. policy/society
