The #1 study guide for Evidence is now in its Seventh Edition. Examples & Explanations: Evidence is the go-to resource for any student struggling to understand the concepts and rules of evidence as described in their casebook. The Examples & Explanations pedagogy encourages students to read the text carefully, apply what they have learned, and test their understanding of the material.

A leader in its field, Examples & Explanations: Evidence features:

clear and concise introductions to the concepts and Rules of Evidence
examples with questions that start out simply and gradually build in complexity
thorough explanations of how to analyze the questions in the examples
a "plain language" version of the Federal Rules of Evidence, complete with new amendments to the Rules
generous use of visual aids—tables and charts—that illustrate key concepts

Still fewer than 350 pages, the Seventh Edition includes:

discussion of Giles v. California, concerning Hearsay and the Confrontation Clause
analysis of newly-adopted Rule 502, regarding inadvertent waiver of the attorney-client privilege, with a plain-language explanation in the Appendix
a flow chart that illustrates the proper sequence of analysis for relevance and hearsay exclusions & exceptions as applied to an out-of-court statement
a new chart that illustrates character evidence with regard to the propensity inference

Examples & Explanations: Evidence, Seventh Edition, is a current and time-proven resource that you can recommend to your students with confidence.
