Many students over the past years while I have been teaching in Mexico have been interested in the structure of the legal process in the United States. In this article, I will briefly attempt to address how the courts are structured, and describe the parties that run law through this structure.
Although brief, this should help you to understand the basic structure of the legal system in the United States. There are many similarities to the Mexican system, but as you can see, also many differences.
