This material contains a good summary of the court system, focusing primarily on the criminal justice duties.  It lists the primary roles of the system and describes in some detail the duties and conflicts they perform and face.  It also details many of the actions of the system itself, again with details of pros and cons.  Most of the links appear broken, and the use of Bold font throughout is distracting.  The material can be used in lessons as is, but the broken links should be repaired or removed.  I plan to use it in future classes.
