9781422417928: Trial Technique and Evidence

Evidence and Trial Advocacy are often taught as if, in practice, the topics are not related. The original edition of this book pioneered the concept that instruction on trial technique and evidence rules in the same volume is an effective way to teach either an Evidence or Trial Advocacy course. This combination provides students with the foundation for becoming skilled trial advocates within the boundaries of the rules of evidence.

Trial Technique and Evidence explains the purpose and application of each evidence rule. The practical methods of presenting evidence are balanced against the requirements of the rules. Indeed, many evidence rules are ""practice"" rules, either not covered in the formal rules of evidence or not addressed in detail. The basis for introducing demonstrative exhibits, for example, is not included in the federal rules, and impeaching witnesses in trial requires knowledge of practical technique. Trial Technique and Evidence allows a professor to incorporate practical requirements with evidence theory. The text also includes practical steps for compliance with the rules, with examples to facilitate the students understanding, and addresses recent developments such as:

  • Jury persuasion;
  • The Supreme Courts new approach to the right of confrontation announced in Crawford v. Washington;
  • Application of rules to electronic evidence;
  • Trends in applying the Daubert factors for assessing expert testimony; and
  • Amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence.

    A mock case file provides factual material for illustrating trial techniques and great material for student exercises
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
