Overview

With a uniquely structured approach to the Socratic Method, Leonard and Gold enable all of the core material in an Evidence course to be taught thoroughly in one semester.

The structured approach:

  • one Federal Rule of Evidence in each section—with text, examples, the reason for the rule, and noteworthy details
  • Questions for Classroom Discussion—a series of hypotheticals—each illustrating a single aspect of the rule and building on previous questions until the rule is fully explored—facilitate learning and improve student preparation for class
  • seminal Evidence cases

In addition to expedient organization and pedagogy, Leonard and Gold provide:

  • hypothetical transcript exercises, charts, and diagrams
  • a unique treatment of hearsay that includes visually depicted chains of inference to illustrate hearsay and non-hearsay statements
  • a streamlined, manageable length
  • a detailed Teacher’s Manual that includes:
    • analysis of each of the Questions for Classroom Discussion
    • capsule descriptions of each case
    • additional questions, readings, and citations to authorities
    • sample syllabi
  • an author website http://faculty.lls.edu/structuredevidence that offers:
    • all Questions for Classroom Discussion in downloadable form to facilitate note taking and leave students more class time to think
    • additional questions and materials for students studying California law
    • questions, answers, and materials for professors (requiring a password)
    • late-breaking Evidence cases and Amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence

New to the Second Edition:

  • Discussion of Crawford v. Washington and Davis v. Washington, altering the Court’s confrontation jurisprudence
  • Amendments to Federal Rules of Evidence 404, 408, 606, and 609
  • Additional hypothetical transcript exercises

With expedient and innovative organization, Leonard and Gold enable you to get through the entire casebook without the customary sprint to the end.
