Overview

Evidence: Cases, Commentary, and Problems, Second Edition, offers a dynamic blend of pedagogy — but tips the scales in favor of using carefully chosen and edited cases to present central concepts and issues of contemporary debate in evidence law.

With a structure that reflects the utility of the Federal Rules of Evidence as a teaching tool, Evidence: Cases, Commentary, and Problems, Second Edition, provides:

  • succinct yet complete coverage
  • cases that illustrate central concepts and controversies of evidence law
  • excerpts from congressional reports and floor debates
  • selected materials from treatises and law review articles
  • relevant portions of the legislative history of the Rules, particularly from the Advisory Committee Notes
  • a mix of hypotheticals and problems based on real cases
  • full coverage of traditional evidence topics, plus cutting-edge issues of emerging debate
  • an overview, in Chapter One, of the role of judicial opinions, the Federal Rules of Evidence, and the Legislative History of the Rules
  • a complete teaching package that includes:
    • an available annual statutory supplement
    • an extensive Teacher’s Manual that includes discussion of both federal and California law
    • PowerPoint slides
    • an author website: www.law.berkeley.edu/faculty/sklansky/evidence
    • a new DVD(available to professors only) featuring movie and television clips that illustrate key concepts and issues at debate in evidence law

New to the Second Edition:

  • a revised and reorganized Hearsay chapter that reflects the Supreme Court’s new understanding of the Confrontation Clause
  • updated coverage of expert testimony and scientific evidence
  • new problems, cases, and editorial material throughout.

Evidence Cases, Commentary, and Problems, Second Edition, is part of a complete teaching package that includes an annual statutory supplement, detailed Teacher’s Manual, PowerPoint, author website, and now an exciting new teaching tool—a DVD of illustrative movie and TV clips that will energize and fuel class discussion.
