Sample text

To apply the law, judges must interpret the legislation and constitutions of the nation. To interpret means to read the law in an attempt to understand its meaning. This nation’s courts are the final word in declaring the meaning of written law. If a court interprets a statute’s meaning contrary to the intent of a legislature, then the legislature may later rewrite the statute to make its intent clearer. This revision has the effect of “reversing” the judicial interpretation of the statute. The process is much more difficult if a legislature desires to change a judicial interpretation of a constitution.

The judicial branch interprets criminal law, oversees criminal adjudications, sentences offenders, and to a limited extent oversees the entire system of adjudication and punishment. Through the power of judicial review, the judiciary may invalidate actions of the president or Congress that violate the Constitution. In contrast, the political branches select federal judges through the nomination (president) and confirmation (Senate) process. Unpopular judicial decisions may be changed either by statute, if the issue is one of statutory interpretation, or by constitutional amendment, if the issue is one of constitutional interpretation.
