Product Description

Widely regarded as the core text in federal jurisdiction, Professor Erwin Chemerinsky treatise covers this complex area of law with unrivaled clarity and authority. His approach to the material is straightforward first defining the law, next identifying unresolved issues, then examining the underlying policy ramifications. Chemerinsky treats doctrine and policy issues more thoroughly than other text always with a balanced view that articulates all sides of an issue. Designed to accompany any of the major casebooks, this Introduction to Law: Federal Jurisdiction is frequently assigned as the course text by instructors who prefer to supply their own case materials.

A cornerstone of federal jurisdiction courses, this leading treatise offers:
An authoritative overview of federal jurisdiction that clearly states the current law, identifies unresolved issues, then explains the underlying doctrinal and policy debates;
A closer look at underlying doctrine than other texts, helping students to gain a better grasp of the fundamental legal issues and policy ramifications behind federal jurisdiction cases;
A balanced approach to arguments and case material, providing students with a well-rounded view of case precedent and a keen appreciation of the arguments on both sides of a given issue.

This edition has been thoroughly updated to include:

New coverage of sovereign immunity in such cases as Florida Prepaid v. College Savings Bank, Kimel v. Florida Board of Regents, University of Alabama v. Garrett, Federal Maritime Commission v. South Carolina and others;
More on restrictions of jurisdiction with particular attention to immigration cases such as St. Cyr v. INS and Zadvydas v. Davis, as well as parts of the USA Patriot Act and the Executive Order establishing military tribunals;
Recent U.S. Supreme Court cases on habeas corpus covering the court's interpretations of the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty in Williams v. Taylor, Tyler v. Cain, Artus v. Bennett, and others.
