This lesson covers the structure and function of the 3 branches of the Unites States government, how each branch makes laws and the checks and balances in place that prevent one branch from acquiring too much power. Even if you are comfortable with how our law is made, it might be wise to work through this short review. It is a very fast lesson and, like all of the CALI lessons, you learn a lot without realizing it.
