Investigating the judicial process, this simulation illustrates the process involving the nine justices, lawyers for the plaintiff and defendant, and amici. Several cases are included, and to facilitate an understanding of case law, the simulation encourages users to research the precedents germane to the case. "The Government in Action Simulation" series provides first-hand experience in the workings of government. Each classroom-tested simulation begins with an easy-to-understand description of the particular process and the key players, and then explains how the simulation works and how to research the role to be played. Each book includes background information, primary sources and other material that flush out the situations and examples for the actual simulations.
