Article III, section 1, of the U.S. Constitution contains three provisions designed to ensure the independence of the federal judiciary: the good behavior clause, the compensation clause, and the judicial power clause. This chapter surveys these provisions. But before doing so, it briefly discusses the judicial power in the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, the first constitution of the United States.
