What Is the Judicial Branch?
As you probably remember from your high school government class, the judicial branch interprets the law and is a coequal branch of government.
The judicial branch cannot make or amend laws. This can only be done by Congress.
Also known as the judiciary, this branch is in charge of interpreting the Constitution, administering constitutional law, and deciding cases.
The judiciary is comprised of the U.S. court system, which includes the Supreme Court, the courts of appeals, and the district and bankruptcy courts.
