Jurisdiction Two types of Jurisdiction: 1.  Subject matter 2.  Personal Personal Jurisdiction: refers to the court's power over the  parties to a lawsuit and is usually an issue when the  defendant in a lawsuit is a resident of a different state  than the one in which the lawsuit was filed.   Personal jurisdiction over the plaintiff is typically not an  issue because the plaintiff has chosen that particular  court and therefore consented to jurisdiction by filing  his/her lawsuit there.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
