Examine the provisions in the US Constitution (Article III) and in the Michigan Constitution concerning the Supreme Court of each government. Write 1-2 pages single-spaced describing the differences in the way the justices are selected and the time that they serve on the bench. Are there advantages to having the state supreme court function differently than the federal supreme court? If not, which system do you believe is the most desirable, the federal or the state system? If you consult sources other than the two constitutions and the textbook, you must provide an APA style reference list that includes them.
