How Government Works in the United States

As citizens, we have a responsibility to understand the workings of our governments. In the U.S., we are bombarded daily with news that originates with the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial branches. What are these institutions? How do they work both independently and in concert with each other? This course looks at several examples of public initiatives, the process by which a bill becomes law, and how the Court applies issues of constitutionality to challenge a law.
