Wolfard, Rachel Gimre
There are two emerging theories that model the exercise of political power in the field of political science. The application of each stand in complete opposition to one another, which signifies that only one of the two models may be applied in a single study. The disciplinary model of power is a more appropriate political power theory than the dimensional model to locate and evaluate the exercise of power within the United States legal system, assuming the judiciary intends to fulfill its Constitutionally prescribed role to interpret and declare the law without corruption. The disciplinary model of power is adapted in this thesis to focus on the exercise of power between individuals throughout the judicial network and how that exercise of power can yield a large-scale socialization effect This analysis is perfonned though the application of network theory in order to investigate how the structure of the judicial system pennits the exercise of disciplinary power. The exercise of disciplinary power within the judicial network leads to the interpretation and declaration of law. This jurispmdence influences how citizens internalize the information that dictates subconscious decisionmaking and action, which can be defined as socialization.
