Register for Federal Court System Classes

This course will examine the Federal Court System: Federal District Courts, the trial courts; Appellate Courts, how and what cases can be appealed; the Supreme Court, how cases reach the Supreme Court and the decision-making process. The class will follow the process in the Gideon Case, right to a lawyer in all criminal cases. There will be two speakers from the Federal Court in Saint Louis who will discuss their jobs and answer questions.
