Course Description:

This course provides a general survey of the rules of evidence and the reasons underlying these rules. These rules regulate proof at trial but also inform pre-trial and transactional practice, which must be done with an eye toward what might need to be admissible later in court. Included are the subjects of relevance, character evidence, rape shield statutes, examination of witnesses, the hearsay rule and its exceptions, and scientific and technical evidence, and opinion testimony from lay and expert witnesses, among other subjects relating to the regulation of proof at trials. The focus will be on the Federal Rules of Evidence, which have largely been adopted in most state jurisdictions as well, with some attention the common law history of evidence rules.

NOTE: Laptops are not allowed during class sessions.
