Overview

This book is the third edition of the enormously successful ROTHSTEIN'S EVIDENCE IN A NUTSHELL. Prof. Rothstein is nationally known for his ability to make difficult points of law clear to the uninitiated, through his writings for students, lectures, and electronic media appearances.

The aim, as always is to provide a concise book that students and professors alike will regard as a useful, up-to-date summary for the students - a succinct review that nevertheless is accurate, relatively complete, and analytically sound. Over the years law students have reported success using the Nutshell during the course or as a study aid at final exam time. (It has also proved useful to practicing lawyers, and to astute lay readers interested in deciphering modern trials from their armchairs.)
