This book breaks with tradition to provide both a theoretical and practical understanding of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Under the principle that learning is most effective when it is both challenging and fun, the book includes numerous courtroom-based problems, both to facilitate the students' theoretical understanding of the rules and to develop their ability to apply evidence rules in practice. A number of problems are based on scenarios drawn from films and TV shows, so instructors can show video clips in conjunction with the problems.
Evidence Law and Practice consistently provides examples, practice hints, explanations, and illustrations in the form of mini-transcripts. Each chapter begins with a checklist of important questions to be addressed for each subject area, followed by the pertinent provisions of the Federal Rules of Evidence, a subject overview, illustrations, examples, and problems. While appellate court opinions are not the primary text of this book, the ways that judges discuss evidence rules are important and a useful basis for classroom discussions. Consequently, many chapters provide summarized versions of relevant opinions.
Features of the Seventh Edition include:
The Teacher's Manual provides answers to every problem, exercise, and role-play. It also includes excerpts from recent scholarship on cutting-edge issues, answers (with explanations) to multiple-choice questions, and teaching hints. The Manual also includes a set of one of the co-author’s teaching notes.
