Overview

With an emphasis on descriptive and policy-oriented text, plus a wide range of well-developed and realistic problems, EVIDENCE: Text, Problems, and Cases, Fourth Edition, presents an engaging exploration of the fundamental principles, policies, and cutting edge issues of the Federal Rules of Evidence.

Refined through years of successful classroom use, this popular casebook:

  • uses clear and concise text to develop student understanding and encourage in-depth examination of problems
  • follows a consistent chapter organization that highlights basic interpretation of the Rules, elaboration of underlying policy, and reflection on theory and practice
  • identifies 'Key Points' to reinforce student understanding of all topics
  • presents a wide range of realistic problems that help students better understand the depth and complexity of the Rules of Evidence
  • opens with a transcript from a real criminal law case that illustrates how evidence is admitted and excluded in practice
  • features a chapter on the trial process to use independently or in tandem with the trial transcript

    Be sure to notice these changes to the Fourth Edition:

    integration of updated Rule amendments and case law, including Crawford v. Washington (confrontation clause) and its subsequent case applications, as well as significant developments in the use of expert testimony

    new problems throughout the book represent a wide range of difficulty, from the basic principles of the Rules to more challenging policy issues

    the chapter on Character Evidence is revised to provide a sharper focus on policies relating to the character ban
