Virginia has always been at the heart of our country’s history; the Jamestown settlement laid the foundation for our country’s government, and with that, the beginning of our judicial system as we know it. The court system is an ever-changing and evolving entity and there are key moments of history when Virginia’s people and its judicial system made their everlasting impressions on the country.
Judicial Independence in the New World tells the story of the development of the court system in the early years of our nation’s history. Historians will take us back to Court Days, Pre-Revolution and Post-Revolution periods to explain the rule of law and the basics of the court system we know today.
