Two Types of Jurisdiction


Before a court can decide a case it must have jurisdiction over the parties as well as the
subject matter. These two types of jurisdiction will be discussed below.
A. Jurisdiction Over the Parties

There are two distinct requirements that must be met before a court can be said to have jurisdiction over the parties: (1) the court must have the power to act, either upon given property, or upon the person himself, so as to subject him to personal liability; and (2) the court must give the defendant adequate notice of a pending action against him, coupled with an opportunity to be heard.
