Judicial process in America
This thoroughly updated, comprehensive study of the American court system provides an insightful look at the complex environment in which judges, lawyers, litigants, and other actors function in our federal and state, civil and criminal systems. Judicial Process in America offers a thorough and balanced look at the procedural and human variables that influence the judicial process. Carp and Stidham examine the interrelation of courts and public policy, the powerful role that judges' decisions play in shaping public policy, and how judges engage in policymaking through their court decisions. The book draws on the latest legal and social science scholarship.
