Since time and the Oklahoma C3 Standards and Common Core objectives give a cursory glance of the United States Constitution in Oklahoma American history classes, this list will provide a more comprehensive look into the constitutional powers granted to the Judicial Branch. This is the final article in a series on the constitutional powers of the federal government. The Legislative Branch has 18. The executive branch has four. The judicial branch has six, and they are only to interpret laws written under the Constitution.
Article III, Section 2 outlines the powers of the judicial branch of government. There is nowhere in Article III that allows the Federal Courts of the United States to use international law or laws of specific religions to adjudicate cases filed in the United States. The power of the federal courts was to be limited to these six because the states are sovereign under the Constitution and should be left to handle most law making and interpretation within their own jurisdictions.
