    This new casebook makes evidence law easier to teach-and to learn. By taking a unique structured approach to the Socratic method, the authors cover all of the core material in a book than can be taught thoroughly in one semester. Here is how the structured approach works:

  • One of the Federal Rules of Evidence introduces each section, followed by test and examples explaining the background, rationale and details of the rule.
  • Every textual excerpt is followed by Questions for Classroom Discussion, a series of hypotheticals, each of which illustrates a single aspect of the rule and builds on the preceding questions until the rule is fully explored; knowing what questions will be posed in class encourages students to prepare and allows them to study efficiently.
  • Edited cases supplement the rule and explanatory text where appropriate. EVIDENCE: A Structured Approach also provides:
  • Seminal cases that every literate lawyer must know.
  • Explanatory transcripts, charts & diagrams.
  • Strong coverage of chains of inferences to demonstrate the reasoning process from an item of evidence to the fact it was offered to prove.
  • Citations to authorities that students can consult for additional explanations and analysis.
  • A detailed Teacher's Manual with analysis of all Questions for Classroom Discussion, capsule descriptions of each case, additional questions, readings, teaching tips and suggested syllabi.
