Hamline Law Professor Douglas McFarland will present a CLE entitled “More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About Supplemental Jurisdiction” from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13. The presentation will take place in Room 105 in the School of Law.

McFarland will base his presentation on two forthcoming law review articles: “Supplemental Jurisdiction over Permissive Counterclaims: A Misconception,” forthcoming in the Mercer Law Review and “Viewing the 'Same Case or Controversy' of Supplemental Jurisdiction through the Lens of the 'Common Nucleus of Operative Fact' of Pendent Jurisdiction,” forthcoming in the Texas Tech Law Review.

A member of the Hamline Law faculty since 1974, McFarland cowrote the book "Minnesota Civil Practice" and writes extensively in the fields of civil procedure, evidence, federal courts, and torts, including Computer-Aided Exercises on Civil Procedure, 4th Edition. He will be retiring from his position with Hamline Law in December.

This free CLE is sponsored by the Hamline Law Alumni Board. One standard CLE credit has been applied for, and the presentation will be available via live webcast.
