A comprehensive explication of Evidence Law, Mueller and Kirkpatrick’s Fourth Edition of Evidence is an authoritative reference, written at a level that makes it approachable and clear for students.

From the authors of the often-cited practitioner's treatise on evidence, this popular student volume features:

  • thorough coverage of both the Federal Rules and state evidence codes
  • straightforward and readable explanations of the rules and analysis of leading cases
  • a consistent emphasis on contemporary judicial interpretations of the Federal Rules of Evidence
  • organization structured around the Federal Rules of Evidence—with common law provided where an issue is not codified
  • helpful marginal headings and mini-summaries to facilitate studying
  • diligent footnotes and case citations

Updated throughout, the revised Fourth Edition features:

  • a thorough discussion of the decisions in the Crawford and Davis cases on modern confrontation doctrine
  • detailed coverage of the decision in the Giles case on forfeiture of confrontation rights
  • updated scientific evidence material addressing recent developments under the Daubert standard
  • amendments to FRE 404, 408, 606, and 609

Evidence, Fourth Edition, continues to offer timely, authoritative coverage in an approachable and navigable format. Just as attorneys and judges reference Mueller and Kirkpatrick to elucidate points of evidence, your students will benefit from owning a copy of this student edition, for clear and illuminating explanations of the rules.
