Washington, D.C. Supreme Court
No matter how tough he or she is, every lawyer in the country must have gotten a little nervous when walking up these steps. Entrances don't get too much more impressive than this, which fits the Supreme Court of the United States.
Inside, there are a few exhibits on the history of the court. There is public seating if the court is in session, and it's on a first come/first served basis. So if you like a good argument, you might want to check ahead to see if a case is on the docket.
By the way, how come the verb "render" is only used with the Supreme Court?
