About this item

This accessible legal text/casebook is for a four-unit course in evidence law. The book’s edited cases are selected to illustrate the central concepts and controversies of evidence law. Where possible, the structure of the book corresponds to the structure of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Compared to most evidence casebooks, there is more material on scientific evidence, expert testimony, probabilistic proof, and demonstrative exhibits, along with more readings on topics such as questioning by the judge and the jury. While some problems test students’ understanding, others highlight ambiguities in the law and real-life practice, or prompt students to reflect on what the rules are trying to accomplish. A bit of humor is in evidence with a conversational writing style and chapter-opening b&w cartoons from The New Yorker. This fourth edition contains about a dozen new cases, while other cases have been eliminated. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
