?The actors consist of lawyers: prosecutors, public

?The topic I have chosen is, the Dynamics of Courthouse Justice. This chapter examines the truths of the courtroom. There are many important “courthouse actors.” These actors consist of lawyers: prosecutors, public defenders, attorneys, judges, clerks, and private attorneys. There is also non-lawyer employers such as secretaries, administrators, court reporter and clerk of the court. Without these employers, courts would not be able to function (Neubauer and Fradella 2018). A court reporter has the job of recording what is said during any type of court activity. The clerks are present to escort the jury as well as make sure there are supplies necessary for the court hearing. They have to manage the court room to make sure that everything operates smoothly. There are also tables specifically for the prosecutor and defense attorney (Neubauer and Fradella 2018). Courts also need other employers in order to manage the courts and filling cases as well as selecting jurors and maintain records of court (Neubauer and Fradella 2018). The most important managers of court are the clerks of the court, chief judges and the administrators. The “assembly line justice,” is the process of offenders being treated as “objects” instead of as people (Neubauer and Fradella 2018). Judges, defense attorneys and prosecutors tend to use a “mass-production technique” when it comes to many caseloads (Neubauer and Fradella 2018). This is to speed up the process of each case. There are also work groups who work together in the court room. These work groups consist of the judges, defense attorneys and prosecuters (Neubauer and Fradella 2018). This is because they work together every day and have to cooperate to make decisions. During cases, discretion is always used. Discretion is having the ability to make a decision is a certain situation. Discretion has three main factors: “legal judgements, policy priorities, and person philosophies” (Neubauer and Fradella 2018). Legal judgements would be the decision to charge somebody. It is the judgement to make a decision. Policy priorities is what crimes would be most important to have priority over others. Personal philosophies aredeciding on one’s motives and attitudes. Ethics is a very important aspect in accordance to a court room. Ethics has to do with values that show the behaviors of a person. Ethics has certain restrictions and values that need to be followed that proves everybody is working for the greatest interest. A major problem within many courts is delay. Delay is a period of time in which something is paused or set back. Delay can be viewed as an issue because it can affect the rights of an offender as well as set back the prosecutor (Neubauer and Fradella 2018). The right to a speedy trial is very important. This is because without it, defendants could be held indeterminately under unconfirmed allegations. It is important for defendants to receive a fair trial. ?This topic interests me because it shows us the roles and values of everybody who works and plays a vital role within the court house. I believe that everybody deserves the right a fair trial. In court, they give individuals the opportunity to share their cases and have them be heard by juries and the judges. This is what seems to be most fair. ?I believe that if we did not have courthouses, people would not be able to go to a somewhat peaceful place in order to solve arguments and predicaments. If we did not have court houses, then people would not be able to see others on trial and learn from it. There could be a possibility that people would not be given a fair chance for a crime they committed where they would need to have a jury pled their case to. Courts help to reinforce the law and protect individuals. They help protect individuals and society and their rights. They attempt to enforce equal defense and due process (Jawando 2015). This is by having a jury and a neutral judge to decide the outcome for the best interest of the individual as well as society.?Overall, courts play a vital role in our justice system. There are many components to court houses such as employees. The assembly line justice and discretion are very important to describe how our courts work. There are many aspects of courthouses that are important to why they exist and what functions they play in society.
