September 29, 2005 Agenda: Recap Bureaucratic Legalism: A Closer Look Ranking the Competing Systems Germany Court Structure Centralization of power o Judges conduct many of the trial proceedings o The experts are called to give opinions Labor Participation Both defendant and prosecution have liberal rights of appeal o In US jury deliberation is secret. o “We’re going to send you to the gas chamber, but we won’t tell you why” No reliable rules of evidence; all evidence allowed o If there is a question about the evidence, the jury can ask the judge. Judges do the primary questioning for the witnesses; lawyers have a secondary role. o Lawyers chime in later; it is far more efficient. Court investigates fact: single expert chosen by court: more centralized and efficient. o In the U.S. the parties develop their own evidence and records “competition”: another check on arbitrary action.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
