Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this book was purchased for a course i took in tha fall. it was great help and resource,but it was missing a portion of the index which limited me in locating specific ideas about the supreme court. this book gives a pretty clear understanding of the supreme court n all its functions and at the same time shows how how other courts function within the court.
