The judicial division forms the backbone of any Constitution, thus providing its country the required support for efficient working and functioning. Just like other countries, the United States of America too has a Bar Association that is committed in improving the American judicial system. Lawyers and judges work collectively to secure the common objective of maintaining law and order in the country. They are the true guardians of the legal system and strive to preserve the truth. America has had prominent lawyers and judges who have committedly worked to preserve the authenticity of the judicial system. Be it the conventional approach or the contemporary outlook, each of them in their own small ways has acted as the protector of the powers of the executive branch. While the list of America lawyers and judges is quite expansive and extensive, some worth mentioning include Abraham ‘Abe’ Fortas, Antonin Scalia, Carl Albert, Clarence Thomas, Alex Kozinski, Stepehen Breyer, Warner E Burger, John Roberts, Earl Warren, Thurgood Marshall and so on. In this male-dominated sector, American women lawyers and judges too have made a space for themselves imitating their iconic role models such as Rosalyn Higgins, Deborah Batts, Sandra Day O Connor, Sonia Sotomayor and the like. Read this section to know about the life and works of American Lawyers and Judges.
