The U.S. Legal System: The Basics is a primer on our legal system and law study. The book's six chapters provide an overview of the U.S. legal system and cover the U.S. Constitution, judicial systems, sources of law, a guide for students on working with case law, and civil dispute resolution. This concise guide gives both traditional and non-traditional students what they need to begin their study of law.
