Overview

Evidence is the most complete reference on evidence law available, written at a level that makes it an accessible, indispensible resource for students. The text emphasizes contemporary judicial interpretations of the Federal Rules of Evidence, making the law relevant to students. Organization around the Federal Rules of Evidence makes the text particularly understandable, with common-law coverage given where an issue is not codified. Throughout the text, Evidence features straightforward explication of the rules, analysis of leading case law, and thorough coverage of both the Federal Rules and state evidence codes. Pedagogical features include helpful marginal headings, mini-summaries of contents at the beginning of each chapter, generous footnotes, and useful case citations. The authors’ strong reputations as casebook authors and authors of Aspen’s practitioner Evidence treatise continue to attract users to this book.

The Fifth Edition has been extensively revised to conform to the new restyled Federal Rules of Evidence that became effective December 1, 2011. Cases new to this edition include Massachusetts v. Melendez-Diaz, Bullcoming v. New Mexico, and Michigan v. Bryant . The new rule amendment to FRE 804 has been introduced as well as new material covering developments relating to the Confrontation Clause as well as the admission of scientific evidence.
