“This book is simultaneously deep and comprehensive. It covers every topic that is appropriate for a judicial process course. Although courts are legal institutions, and students must learn basic elements of the law, courts are largely political in nature. Professors Banks and O’Brien do an outstanding job explaining both the legal and political elements of the judicial process.”
“In addition to the standard topics, Banks and O’Brien also cover jurisprudence, which is a very welcome addition in a judicial process text.”
“A very clear and well developed organization to the book that addresses major components of the study of the courts; one of the real strengths is the comparative approach to garner a better understanding of how the American judicial system compares to other judicial systems.”
This is the text that previous professor utilized and it met my needs.
