Item Details

The Judicial Branch is made up of all the many different court systems in America. Its job is to take the laws that are passed by Congress and signed by the president and interpret them. When someone has broken a law, or feels that a law doesn't follow the rules set up in the Constitution, a judge or jury must first decide how the law should be explained, if it should be changed, if someone should be punished, and must also protect people's rights.
