Course Description:

SPECIAL NOTES REGARDING SESSION DATES/TIMES/ROOM: None

COURSE DESCRIPTION: A study of the Federal Rules of Evidence (because most state rules are similar) and the reasons underlying the rules. The rules govern the proof of disputed issues of fact in criminal and civil trials, including the functions of judge and jury; relevancy; character evidence; impeachment; hearsay; the Confrontation Clause; and lay and expert testimony. Much of the analysis will come from a psychological perspective. This is a rule-base and NOT a case-based class (although there are some cases to read). Some (book) problems, demonstrations, and role-playing. (Note: There will be 4-credit evidence classes offered in the Spring.)

Course Requirement:Flex examination at end of the semester.
