The Courts and the Constitution (William Powers - 6:45)

UT-Austin President and professor of law William Powers discusses the development of the judiciary in the federal system created by the U.S. Constitution. Since the Constitution actually says almost nothing about the power of the federal courts or the structure of court system, judicial practice has evolved over time as the courts grappled with and sought to referee issues that arose within the political system.
