       The Federal Court System in the United States: An Introduction for Judges and Administrators in Other Countries (Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, Office of Judges Programs, Article III Judges Division)
    "This booklet is designed to introduce judges and judicial administrators in other countries to the United States federal judicial system, its organization and administration, and its relationship to the legislative and executive branches of the government." And so it may prove very useful for the rest of us, too, since, unlike so many legal writings, it may take extra steps to explain how and why the judicial system works. Because it assumes a sophisticated audience, it may not be as simplistic and consumer oriented as some "understanding the law" writings. Includes a handy chart showing examples of state courts' and federal courts distinct and overlapping areas of jurisdiction, Also includes a section on the "distinctive features of the American Judicial System", including the adversary system, the common law system, the way fees and costs of litigation are handled, execution of judgments, court rules, reporting of judicial proceedings and publication of court opinions. (2001, 2nd edition)(63 pages)
