Federal Courts is a combination of Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure, and legal history. The course covers questions of justiciability (Article III subject matter jurisdiction---standing, ripeness, mootness and political question); the relationship between the federal courts and Congress; the role of the Supreme Court in reviewing decisions of the state courts; and the relationship between the federal and state courts. The casebook is the classic Hart & Wechsler's The Federal Courts and the Federal System.
