Is the purpose of the judicial branch to make laws?
No, the purpose of the Legislative Branch is to make laws. The purpose of the Judicial Branch is to interpret and apply the law.
What is the purpose of each of the three branches of your government executive branch judicial branch and legislative branch?
If you mean the Three Branches of Government, then they are the Legislative Branch Executive Branch Judicial Branch The Legislative Branch creates laws and decides whether to approve, or deny them. If a President vetoes a bill, then they can un-veto it and allow everyone to re-vote on it. The Executive Branch is another part of the process in making laws; he decides whether to pass the laws. The Legislative Branch only really suggests bills…
The Judicial Branch does NOT make laws. That is the responsibility of the Legislative Branch. However, in ruling on the interpretation of existing laws, the Judicial Branch may appear to be creating additional (new) responsibilities that the Executive Branch must adhere to. Certain folks call this "legislating from the bench", but that is overtly pejorative.
The three branches of government created by the Constitution are the legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch. A good example of the legislative branch is Congress, because they make the laws. The executive branch(such as the President) enforces the laws. The judicial branch, also known as the Supreme Court, interprets the laws according to the Constitution. The judicial branch has the power to declare laws unconstitutional.
The Judicial Branch is a extremely important part of our American government. The Judicial branch interprets whether laws are constitutional, and apply's the laws set in the constitution. With-out it new laws wouldn't be made. They also make sure the the president doesn't abuse his power. Some day hopefully they will make sure that a she doesn't abuse her power as-well.
