Discussion: The Judge

The judge now commands everyone to be seated. The trial may proceed.

But how that trial proceeds may have been decided before anyone entered the room. Was a plea deal reached? Is the judge bound by sentencing guidelines? How much power does the judge really have these days? If the judge’s role has changed, how does it differ from bygone eras or original visions of judicial power? In this Discussion, you consider similar questions.

By Day 3

Post a response to the following:

  • Despite changes in who holds the most power, explain why the judge receives the most deference.
  • In your response, be sure to incorporate historical influence, institutional practices, and/or political factors to support your position.
  • In your response, you may incorporate professional experience or insights.

By Day 5

Respond to two colleagues:

  • Choose a response that is different from your own.
  • Explain how your colleague’s position has changed your perception or understanding.
