Overview

This highly successful, problem-based coursebook for the basic evidence course enters its Fifth Edition reflecting recent changes to the Federal Rules of Evidence and providing even greater flexibility for teaching and learning.

With each edition of Evidence Under the Rules, the authors refine their approach and build on their book's popular features:

  • The book is organized around the Federal Rules of Evidence, and covers the basics clearly and succinctly.
  • A combination of explanatory text, problems, carefully-selected cases, and notes provide superb coverage and sustains interest in the subject.
  • Engaging and realistic problems effectively raise critical issues in evidence law and application of the Federal Rules.
  • Careful editing pares down cases to include enough facts to provide context while focusing on evidence issues.
  • Flexible organization allows professors to easily restructure the material to fit their course organization.
  • Extensive Teacher's Manual provides analysis of featured cases, problems, and issues raised in the note material.
  • Annual Rules supplement contains the text of the Federal Rules standing alone, along with a separate section setting forth both the Rules and the accompanying advisory committee notes and relevant congressional reports, making for a full teaching package covering the whole course.

    In addition to changes in the rules integrated throughout the book, the Fifth Edition presents:

  • Several new feature cases and problems, extensively revised note material, updated references in notes to additional opinions decided since the previous edition of the book.
  • Revised material on scientific evidence to reflect developments since Kumho Tire and the recent changes in FRE 702 in expert testimony.
  • Revisions designed to shorten and clarify the introductory material on the hearsay doctrine.
  • References to State v. Crawford, currently being reviewed in the United States Supreme Court, which may bring developments in the against-interest exception and the jurisprudence of the Confrontation Clause.

    The respected and well-known team of Christopher B. Mueller and Laird C. Kirkpatrick has helped generations of law students understand how the rules of evidence actually apply in practice. Put their expertise to work in your next course by adopting their coursebook Evidence Under the Rules, Fifth Edition.
