Am looking for a definition, and examples, of what "issue spotting" is.

Can someone please explain what the role of an LLM is? I'm currently in a 1L program part-time and also working full time.
I'm not necessarily interested in practicing law but do want a legal background and am not sure if there is any alternative other than going to law school for four years part-time.
Would an LLM be a possibility or do you need a law degree to get into an LLM program?
Thanks for the description.
So, say in your description, that federal subject matter description is met because of federal question criteria and the plaintiff can bring suit in federal court. Would we then say that "the federal court can exercise jurisdiction over the case?"
Glannon's Civil Pro book says that one of the requirements of a proper court for a lawsuit is "the need to find a court that can exercise personal jurisdiction over the defendant."
I know (I think) that states can assert PJ over a defendant in certain circumstances.
However, if the complaint is filed in federal court, do we also say that the federal court is "exercising personal jurisdiction over the defendant?"
(I'm getting a little mixed up between state personal jurisdiction and federal subject matter diversity.)
