Federal Jurisdiction (3170)

This course examines the breadth, limits and nature of federal courts. It analyzes the relationship between the federal courts and the Congress, the federal courts and the executive branch, and the federal courts and the states. It explores whether changes in federal jurisdiction can be seen as a responses to political, economic, and social considerations, or as mere case by case adjustments, producing exceptions and inconsistencies.
