This one-volume treatise provides clear and concise explanations for the application and practical effect of each Rule of Evidence--a valuable resource for any Evidence student. This treatise was recently cited as "the authoritative text" on federal evidence law (United States v. Schlesinger, 372 F. Supp. 2d 711, 720 (E.D.N.Y. 2005)). Annually supplemented and complete, this edition contains a careful examination of the most recent changes in the Federal Rules. This edition includes a detailed line-by-line summary and analysis of the newest Federal Rule of Evidence, Rule 502, which sets forth certain important new limitations on the waiver of the attorney-client privilege and work product protection. It also discusses the Supreme Court's latest decision in Kansas v. Ventris (2009), concerning the extent to which a witness may be impeached with prior inconsistent statements that were obtained in violation of witness's constitutional rights. And of course it includes an extensive discussion of four landmark Supreme Court decisions, Crawford v. Washington (2004), Davis v. Washington (2006), Whorton v. Bockting(2007), and Giles v. California (2008), which have completely rewritten the law governing the right of a criminal defendant to rely on the Confrontation Clause to obtain the exclusion of otherwise admissible hearsay.

Evidence And The Advocate A Contextual Approach To Learning Evidence

Evidence and the Advocate teaches each rule of evidence using a three pronged approach: (1) a treatise-like explanation of the rule, its purposes, exceptions and foundations; (2) cases, discussion questions and hypothetical problems related to the rule; and (3) an application section in which the students must prepare a courtroom exercise putting the rule into action. This approach forms a teaching template for each rule of evidence. Each application exercise stands alone and has been designed to illuminate the rule being taught. The application exercises range from simple form-of-question drills to full-fledged evidentiary hearings. Some require minimal preparation, and others require significant out-of-class research and preparation. In the exercises, students serve as attorneys, witnesses, judges, and, in the more involved exercises, as a court of appeals. The exercises build on each other. The initial exercises focus on fundamental advocacy skills such as conducting a direct examination or laying the foundation for an exhibit. Later exercises incorporate these foundational skills for more complicated tasks such as writing a motion, impeaching a witness, or conducting a Daubert hearing on the reliability of expert testimony.

Evidence: A Structured Approach offers a unique, structured approach facilitates learning and motivates students to prepare for class. One Federal Rule of Evidence introduces each section, followed by text explaining the background, rationale, and details of the rule. The text includes numerous diagrams as visual aids to learning and short transcripts that illustrate how the rules are applied in the courtroom. The authors emphasize the rules over cases, but include edited versions of some judicial opinions, including the seminal cases that every lawyer should know. The heart of the “structured approach” is the Questions for Classroom Discussion, which follow the narrative explanation for each rule. These questions consist of simple hypothetical cases allowing for a step-by-step analysis of each rule. Because students know what will be the focus of class discussion, they quickly learn that preparation pays off. The book’s website allows students to download the questions directly into their notes before class, freeing students to spend more time listening and thinking while in class.
