This chapter focuses on the characteristics of Mexico's judicial system. Two fundamental principles of governmental authority, federalism and the separation of powers, give form to the basic court structures in Mexico. Thus, in Mexico, one finds that judicial power is distributed between independent but interrelated systems of federal and state courts. Moreover, at the federal and state levels, the judiciary constitutes a distinct branch of government, formally independent of the executive and legislative branches.

Keywords:   judicial system, federalism, court structures, judicial power, federal courts, state courts, judiciary
