Course Description:

This course provides a general survey of the rules of evidence and the policies that are thought to underlie those rules. Rules of evidence regulate proof of facts at trial, but they also inform pre-trial practice as well as transactional practice, which must be done with an eye toward what might later be admissible in court, in the event of litigation. Included are the topics of relevance, character and propensity evidence, rape shield, competency and examination of witnesses, the hearsay rule and its exceptions, expert and scientific evidence, and opinion testimony. Focus will be on the Federal Rules of Evidence, variants of which have been adopted in most state jurisdictions.
