Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! This is the second episode in our "Listen and Learn" series, where we review legal concepts and apply them to fact patterns. Today, we're talking about civil procedure -- in particular, supplemental jurisdiction.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is supplemental jurisdiction?
  • The rules of supplemental jurisdiction and some related examples
  • Going through an essay question from the July 2012 California Bar Exam
  • Identifying the original basis of jurisdiction
  • How to apply the rules of supplemental jurisdiction to diversity of citizenship and federal cases
