Seller's description

This is a four-part package of notes including:

1. An exhaustive outline of Federal Courts, taught by Prof. Caleb Nelson using Hart and Wechsler's 7th Edition. Topics covered included justiciability (standing, ripeness, mootness, and political questions), the original and appellate jurisdiction of SCOTUS and lower Article III courts, federal regulation of state court jurisdiction, the function and powers of non-Article III courts, rule of decision (including Erie, Hanna, choice of law doctrines, federal common law, implied causes of action, and preemption doctrines), state sovereign immunity, judicial federalism (including doctrines of abstention and preclusion), and habeas corpus. The outline includes a summary of every case Prof. Nelson taught.

2. An 11-page attack outline that organizes and summarizes the major points of the course.

3. A 5-page high-level outline that organizes each doctrine, concept, theme, and major case covered by the course. Ideal for ensuring that you are thinking about all issues within a major topic area of the course.

4. A table of contents containing each case covered in the course, which allows the main outline to be easily searched in printed form when Ctrl+F is not available.
