Description:

Evidence: Cases, Commentary, and Problems offers comprehensivecoverage of the topics and concepts central to evidence law, whileremaining concise enough to cover in a four-unit course. Organizedaround the Federal Rules of Evidence, with carefully edited cases,thought-provoking problems, and a wide variety of secondary material,this casebook gives students a solid foundation in the principles anddebates surrounding evidence law without the confusion of moreencyclopedic approaches. A strong Teacher’s Manual, including discussionof federal and California law, website support, PowerPoint slides and aDVD round out the complete teaching package.The Third Edition includes new materials and cases reflectingdevelopments in privilege and physical evidence, confrontation clausejurisprudence, and technical and jurisprudential developments inscientific proof. New problems and cases have been added throughout,with older ones still available on the website for quick reference.Features:Comprehensive coverage of all subjects traditionally covered inevidence courses, as well as areas of emerging debate.Well-selected, tightly edited cases illustrate the centralconcepts and controversies of the law rather than attemptingencyclopedic coverage.Carefully selected problems—some hypothetical and some based onactual cases —allow students to test their understandingof particularly confusing rules.Compelling excerpts from treatises and law review articles;portions of the legislative history of the Rules, particularly theAdvisory Committee Notes; and congressional reports and floor debatesaugment the cases.Thoughtful organization of the material is based on theFederal Rules of Evidence and leverages the Rules as a teachingtool.Chapter 1 provides the background knowledge assumed in mostdiscussions of evidence law, including judicial opinions, the FederalRules of Evidence, and the Legislative History of the Rules.Short enough to teach cover-to-cover in a four-unit course.Complete teaching package that includes an annual statutorysupplement, an extensive Teacher’s Manual, PowerPoint slides,website, and DVD.Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents:New material reflecting developments in confrontation clausejurisprudence, especially as relates to Melendez-Diaz v.Massachusetts and Michigan v.
