  • a logical and clear organization structured around the Federal Rules of Evidence
  • effectively balanced pedagogy—lucid exposition, problems, and carefully edited cases
  • numerous and engaging problems that give students practice applying the Federal Rules of Evidence
  • focused case excerpts that home in on the relevant evidentiary aspects of the case
  • a flexible organization that adapts to a variety of teaching approaches
  • a detailed Teacher's Manual
    • a new guide to excerpts from the media demonstrating the FRE being applied—or misapplied
  • a companion 2008 Statutory and Case Supplement

The Sixth Edition offers renewed timeliness and excellence, through:

  • numerous new and highly teachable problems
  • A DVD, available to professors for classroom use, featuring movie clips that illustrate and dramatize important points of evidence
  • new material on post-Crawford developments regarding the right of confrontation
  • coverage of the 2006 amendments to the FRE 404, 408, 606, and 609
