By Day 7

Submit a 750- to 1,250-word consultation report for a nation that is creating a new judicial system as part of its newly drafted constitution.
The characteristics of the newly formed nation include:
Indigenous peoples make up 15% of the population; recent immigrants make up another 20%; descendants of a group that historically had been treated as a subclass but has been attempting to gain a foothold in society for many generations make up 35%; and a group descended from centuries-old settlers to the land make up the final 30%. This final group always has held the largest share of wealth and power, although other groups have marginal representation in these areas. This final group has for many generations held a significant majority of governmental roles.
The topics to be addressed in your consultation report are:

  • Define due process in the newly created judicial system and how it will be articulated in a clear way to citizens.
  • Identify important roles in the newly created judicial system.
  • How do the roles in the newly created judicial system affect the balance of power? How does the balance of power affect each role?
  • How do you propose balancing the protection of rights with the protection of society?
  • How can the new judicial system be developed with cultural awareness as a key feature?

Be sure to reference your course readings to support your claims and reasoning.
As a separate analysis that is not a part of the report, respond to the following:

  • How does an exercise like this contribute to positive social change in your own judicial system?
