|An Impartial Judiciary: A Cornerstone of Democracy.
Our Constitution designed a government based on three equal branches: the Executive, Legislative, and Judiciary. The news often covers the first two branches and rarely discusses the Judiciary beyond court decisions. This educational forum will explore the meaning of judicial impartiality and independence, as well as some of the rules that govern how judges work.
Free and open to the public, but please reserve your spot: http://bit.ly/ImpartialJudiciary.
Sponsored by the Leagues of Women Voters of Santa Clara County
