Overview and metadata sections

The Federal Judicial Code Revision Project is the Institute's third major work on the jurisdiction of the federal courts. In 1969, the American Law Institute published its Study of the Division of Jurisdiction Between State and Federal Courts. In 1994 it finished work on the Complex Litigation Project and published Complex Litigation: Statutory Recommendations and Analysis. This work reconsiders three subjects within Title 28 of the United States Code: supplemental jurisdiction, venue, and removal.

The Federal Judicial Code Revision Project Records, 1995-2000, include memorandums and drafts related to the project.
