Overview

Before Kentucky enacted the Kentucky Rules of Evidence, the trial bar relied on The Kentucky Evidence Law Handbook for quick, accurate answers to evidence questions. Now in its Fourth Edition, the Kentucky Evidence Law Handbook delivers the same reliable information from the principal author of the Rules. In a complete overhaul of the previous editions, Professor Lawson provides step-by-step commentary on the law of evidence in Kentucky. The Third Edition was regularly used by the Kentucky courts in shaping the state's law of evidence, in both civil and criminal cases.

In the Fourth edition, new materials have been added in virtually every section of every chapter. This includes complete coverage of the 2002 changes to the Kentucky Rules of Evidence, especially the amendments to KRE 608 that became effective July 1, 2003. The new edition also features comprehensive and expanded materials on expert testimony, with added attention to developments based on the federal decisions of Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Kumho Tire Co. v. Carmichael.

As in previous editions, the Handbook provides complete coverage of all Kentucky decisions (Supreme Court and Court of Appeals) that construe or apply the Kentucky Rules of Evidence, and comprehensive coverage of both pre-Rules decisions and federal cases that provide helpful guidance on using the Rules of Evidence or are likely to be influential with the Kentucky courts.

When the pace quickens in court and you need an answer fast, the index leads you directly to the topics that typically arise at trial and appeal, such as:

•   Revelance
•   Impeachment
•   Witness testimony
•   Opinion evidence
•   Hearsay
•   Authentication
•   Best Evidence Rule
