In its Third Edition, this problem-based casebook achieves a new standard of efficiency and effectiveness. Organized around the Federal Rules of Evidence for the widest possible application, Problems, Cases, and Materials on Evidence, Third Edition, reflects its authors' expertise as scholars and as teachers.

Every element of the casebook is tailored for classroom success and true student understanding:

  • problems focus on realistic practice issues
  • materials give students a solid understanding of how the Federal Rules apply in the real world
  • the authors expose the underlying principles, policy choices, and jurisprudential values on which the Federal Rules are based through a careful blend of cases and problems
  • exclusive focus on a single set of rules facilitates both teaching and learning.
  • annual supplementation with the current version of the Federal Rules of Evidence, proposed-but-not-enacted rules, and other selected material (including the California Rules of Evidence) ensures timely coverage of developments

What's new in the Third Edition?

  • for the first time, an accompanying Website that can be accessed by professors, students and practitioners contains all the cases and problems from the book, as well as the full text of the Federal Rules of Evidence, topical indices, sample course syllabi, and other materials
  • new co-author Peter Murray of Harvard Law School adds his distinctive voice to the text
  • updated problems succinctly capture evidence issues and stimulate class discussion
  • scrupulous revision of the entire casebook, with a wealth of new material on privilege, expert testimony, the rape-shield law, and DNA evidence.
  • reorganized chapters on character evidence, witnesses, and credibility
  • new explanatory and transitional text for deeper understanding and easier comprehension of the relationships between concepts

If you plan on taking a problem-oriented approach to evidence in your next course, use the casebook that set and continues to refine the standard, Green, Nesson, and Murray's Problems, Cases, and Materials on Evidence, Third Edition.
