Federal Jurisdiction, 7th Edition
Wolters Kluwer has just published the 7th edition of Federal Jurisdiction by Erwin Chemerinsky, which is now available on the law library's new titles shelf (located next to the public computer terminals across from the reference desk, under the call number KF8858.C48). This source, a part of the Aspen Student Treatise Series, covers topics related to constitutional and statutory limits on federal court jurisdiction, federal court relief against governments and government officers, and federal court review of state judgments and proceedings. There is a table of cases, subject index, and the appendices contain the full text of the U.S. Constitution along with relevant statutes. This treatise is is an excellent source to supplement exam preparation.
