This chapter discusses a study of the inter-nation indicators that determine the success of specialized adjudication units. Variables come in two categories: the units that deal with the legislative system and the government, and the units that pertain to populace and topography. To gather manageable findings, the research concentrates on the notable differences between the legal systems of New Zealand and United States. Results relevant to modern democracies are the considered aspects. Prior to the examination of these factors, the author provides an overview of the administration and the legislative bodies of the two aforementioned countries, followed by their corresponding demography, human resources and geography. Although the inter-nation approach also posts some pitfalls, this attempt together with the use of multiple-speciality model addresses a large load of cases.
