Jurisdiction vs. venue

Show on page(s): 

"Jurisdiction is the power to adjudicate and is granted by Congress.  Litigants may not confer this power on the court by waiver or consent . . . ."

"[B]ut the place where the power to adjudicate is to be exercised is venue, not jurisdiction.  The venue has relation to the convenience of the litigants and may be waived or laid by consent of the parties."
