    The terms "voluntary jurisdiction," "mixed jurisdiction," and "contentious jurisdiction" don't have much meaning in English.

    As for "contentious," "disputed" might work better, but since I have no idea what the idea is in the first place, I offer that only as a guess.

    Contentious jurisdiction (Eng. Eccl. Law), jurisdiction over matters in controversy between parties, in contradistinction to voluntary jurisdiction, or that exercised upon matters not opposed or controverted.

    CONTENTIOUS JURISDICTION, eccl. law. In those cases where there is an action or judicial process, and it consists in hearing and determining the matter between party and party, it is said there is contentious jurisdiction, in contradistinction to voluntary jurisdiction, which is exercised in matters that require no judicial proceeding, as in taking probate of wills, granting letters of administration, and the like. 3 Bl. Com. 66.
