Shameless Plug for Federal Jurisdiction

Professor Cross would like to point out that there are plenty of open seats in the M-W-F Federal Jurisdiction class.  Contrary to what you might think from the name, the class is not an upper-level Civil Procedure class.  Instead, it is a class in Constitutional law; more particularly, the role of the federal courts in the US constitutional system.  As such, the course would be very useful to anyone considering a federal judicial clerkship, or those who plan on practicing regularly in the federal courts, as well as to those feeling claustrophobic in another course and wanting more elbow room.  Coverage includes abstention, political questions, eleventh amendment immunity for the states, and enforcement of the right to due process.  The only prerequisite is Civil Procedure.
