APPELLATE COURT 2 Appellate Court Comparing the Intermediate and the High Appellate Courts Whereas the high appellate court is considered the highest law court at the state level, the intermediate appellate court acts as an intermediate step between the trial courts and the highest court department in a region. The appellate courts review the ruling of the lower courts to make sure that the procedures were fair and according to the regional constitution and the universal bill of rights. In the United States of America, for instance, the various states have independent court systems despite having similar structure across the American region (Karlen, 2014). The trial courts engage in the first hearing before the appellate courts try reviews the hearing procedures in suspicion that the lower courts made some errors during the hearing and making of the deci- sions in the lower courtrooms.

    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.
