Assignment: the structure of the courts and court processes | BUSI 2001 – Business Law | Walden University

 For many individuals, being involved in a court case is very stressful and time consuming, and a lack of understanding of the entire legal process may cause some of that stress. For a business, it is critical to have a strong legal team working on its behalf to manage all aspects of a case or legal issue, and many companies employ their own legal counsel for that purpose. As an individual working within business environments, you may have occasion to participate in legal matters involving your organization—or to make decisions that have legal implications. It is very helpful, therefore, to have a solid understanding of how cases proceed through a court system, who are the individuals involved in the courtroom process, and which laws take priority in various situations.

This Assignment covers the U.S. court systems, specifically which court would have jurisdiction in a given matter, how to handle conflicting statutes, and who participates in the court process.

To prepare for this Assignment:

  • Review the Learning Resources and consider the various ways by which laws take precedence and how jurisdiction plays a role in determining how laws are enforced.
  • Focus on the process of the U.S. court system, including the participants, court structures, and appeals process.
  • Refer to the Academic Writing Expectations for 2000/3000-Level Courses as you compose your Assignment.
