  • Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS)

    Since the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is the final authority within the USA’s judicial system, it has an enormous importance. The Court orders the final judgment in the end of two levels; district courts and circuit courts.

Its ability to exercise the judicial review of legislation for compatibility with the Constitution and to cancel incompatible legislation is why this Court is truly significant.

  • TÜRK İŞ MAHKEMESİ
    about the court

    TFransız İhtilali ve Sanayi Devriminden bu yana, işçilerin kendilerini ifade edebilecekleri ve haklarını savunabileceği bir hukuk dalı yaratma ihtiyacı ortaya çıkmıştır. Sanayilerin gelişmesi ve günümüzde çok önemli bir yere gelmesiyle birlikte işçi işveren ilişkileri öne çıkmış, kapitalizmin getirisiyle birlikte maddi imkanı düşük olan işçiler ezilmeye, hakları yenmeye başlanmıştır. Toplumsal barışı sağlamaya adanan hukuk mekanizmaları da bu olayın önüne geçmek için işçileri kanunla korumak, işçi – işveren ilişkilerinin kapsamını belirlemek ve hukuki bir zemin yaratmak amacıyla kanunlar çıkarılmıştır. İşte tam bu noktada, işçilerin söz sahibi olmasıyla temelleri atılan iş hukuku, iş sözleşmesine dayanarak ücret karşılığı bir başkası (işveren) için ve ona bağlı olarak çalışanlar (işçi) ile bunların arasındaki iş ilişkilerini düzenleyen hukuk dalıdır.

  • US Criminal
    about the court

    Unlike in most countries, the United States criminal justice system is not represented by a single, all- encompassing institution. Rather, it is a network of criminal justice systems at the federal, state, and special jurisdictional levels like military courts and territorial courts. Criminal laws at these levels vary, although these are all based on the US Constitution. The federal criminal justice system handles cases that are national in scope: treason, espionage, assassination of top-level government officials, among others. Meanwhile, state criminal justice systems handle crimes that have taken place or, in certain situations, have evident involvement in the state.

  • TÜRK CEZA MAHKEMESİ
    about the court

    Türk yargı sisteminde, adli yargı disiplinin bir kolu olan ceza mahkemeleri, Cumhuriyet Savcılıkları kanalıyla açılan davaları karara bağlar. Mahkeme, yargılama süresinde başta Türk Ceza Kanunu başta olmak üzere temel ceza normlarının ihlal edilip suçun oluşup oluşmadığına karar verir. Normun ihlal edilip edilmediği ve yine ihlal edilen normun hangi norm olduğu önemlidir zira Ceza Hukukunda diğer hukuk dallarından farklı olarak suçta ve cezada kanunilik ilkesi hakimdir ve kıyas da yasaktır. Bunun bir sonucu olarak, Hakim kanunda suç olarak düzenlenmemiş bir fiile ceza veremez veya halihazırda varolan bir normun içeriğini kıyas yoluyla genişletemez.
