Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today we are digging into a commonly-tested exam topic in Federal Civil Procedure – determining proper venue in civil actions.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is venue, and how to distinguish between venue and jurisdiction
  • How venue can be properly established and changed
  • Venue statutes and their application
  • Analyzing two essay questions, from the February 2009 and July 2021 California bar exams
