My Senior Individualized Project concerns the organization and functioning of the federal judicial system. As one of the three enumerated branches of government found in the United States Constitution, the system of courts was originally designed as the weakest of the three branches. But the evolvement of the American political order has provided a remarkable place to the judiciary. Today the federal system of courts maintains the most powerful and far-reaching position in government with essentially the same system of courts formulated almost two centuries ago. The role played by the federal judiciary has been fundamental in the survival of our political system, in spite of its apparent complicated workings. It is these workings, or functions, that will be addressed in the text.
