In Section 1.5 and Section 1.6, Wright provides insight on the size of the justice system and identifies factors that distinguish various criminal justice models. Overall, reviewing the content in Chapter 1 of the Wright text will provide you a foundation for exploring the Week 1 prompts and topics.
