I chose option 1: The intern, as an intern for the Supreme Court Justice I view first hand all that is involved in the U.S. Supreme Court and their decision making. The U.S. Supreme Court is seen as the one of the highest courts, due to it having its own original jurisdiction in limited categories. This Court is extremely importation and it plays a huge role in society. The Supreme Court is able to have authority over any federal or state case and helps to find out whether the case is violating the U.S. Constitution while hearing the case. The Supreme Court is put into place to help control the flow of the community and keep criminals off of the stress and keep people out of danger. [Your paper will benefit from a stronger introduction. The introduction provides an opportunity to capture the reader's attention with a “hook.” It also indicates what the paper will be about and how you will approach the topic. Refer to the 5-paragraph tutorial from Writing Wizards in the Tutorials & Guides section of the Center for Writing Excellence for more information about writing introductions.] The normal process for a criminal case as it continues to progress to the Supreme Court, is the judges hear many case cases between people and corporations. All cases are seen through lower courts and are given the order to send a case threw to the bigger courts. This means that there are at least four people who decide whether the case should be held for an oral argument. Attorneys in different cases provide the judge with appellate briefs, which is like and overview of the case at hand. Explaining why their defendant is innocence in most cases. After each oral argument is announces the decision is still judged on a large scale by chosen jurors and come to a fair and equal determination. Although the Supreme Court is very powerful there are still a few limits that they do have. The Supreme Court also helps to ensure that each branch is able to recognize its limitation of power. The Supreme Court is not able to decide which cases it would like to take and decision making. Since it has it original jurisdiction in the Supreme Court decision, the Supreme Court is entitled to take any criminal cases and give them a fair hearing. This experience as an intern for the U.S. Supreme Court has really helped to shape my voices on the importance of the court process and the need for a smooth running corporation. [Your paper will benefit from a stronger conclusion. A concluding paragraph summarizes the main idea, ties the main points together neatly for the reader, and ends with a sense of finality. Avoid introducing new ideas in the conclusion.]
