• Structure of the Court System: Crash Course Government and Politics #19

    This week Craig Benzine is going to talk about the structure of the U.S. court system and how exactly it manages to keep things moving smoothly. We’’ll talk about trial courts, district courts, appeals courts, circuit courts, state supreme courts, and of course the one at the top - the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s all quite a bit to manage with jurisdictions and such, but it's important to remember that the vast majority of cases never even make it to court! Most are settled out of court, but also terms like mootness and ripeness are used to throw cases out altogether. Today, we're going to focus on how cases make it to the top, and next week we’ll talk about what happens when they get there.

  • Pathways to the Bench: U.S. District Court Judge Julie A. Robinson

    U.S. District Court Judge Julie A. Robinson's journey to the federal bench in Topeka, KS, started when, at the age of five, she decided to become a lawyer. She credits her success to her father's faith in her and the fact that her mentors set high standards and demanded the best from her. Judge Robinson tells young people: "You never can dream big enough, sometimes. You can never really know all that is in store for you. All you can do is make sure that you are ready, and positioned, and able, and willing to accept all that comes your way."
