State Trial Practice - E-Newsletter January 25, 2010


State Trial Practice

The American legal system depends on the adversarial process to bring out the truth. Parties to disputes present their arguments to an impartial judge who resolves the matter by examining the facts, applying the relevant law, and issuing a decision. This basic model applies to both civil and criminal cases. Civil cases concern private conflicts between individuals, businesses, and the government, while criminal cases involve law enforcement by the government against individuals. Both types of cases may be brought to trial before state courts.
