on Roman Law,” etc.
This book is intended as a manual or ready reference book for law students and others who may desire to learn or make use of the elements of the subject of Federal Jurisdiction and Procedure without having to search through the voluminous works which treat this subject exhaustively. The main part of the book is based upon a course of lectures which the author delivered for a number of years in the School of Law of Washington and Lee University. It presents in a brief but fairly comprehensive manner the subject of federal jurisdiction in general, and describes fully the several courts of the federal judicial system, with the details of their organization, jurisdiction, etc. One chapter is devoted to the subject of Removal of Causes and another to a brief description of the procedure of the federal courts. Then follows an outline of a suit in equity under the new Federal Equity Rules.
The Appendix consists of the complete text of the Judicial Code of 1911, with the amendments thereto, and the new Equity Rules which went into effect February 1, 1913.
In the present edition of this book considerable new matter has been added and the entire book has been thoroughly revised.
