Outline of the US Legal System

Logo for Outline of the US Legal System
There can be no more potent demonstration of the trust that Americans place in the rule of law and their confidence in the U.S. legal system. The pages that follow survey that system. Much of the discussion explains how U.S. courts are organized and how they work.

Written in Dec. 2004.  The site America.gov has now gone social, but the open textbook can still be accessed in HTML or PDF.

Technical Remarks:

The text is in HTML and PDF.

This is a free text which would make a good source for supplemental reading for your students.  You might even use it as a text for a high school class.
