Evidence Problems and Materials (ISBN10: 0820546917; ISBN13: 9780820546919)
ISBN13: 978-0820546919
ISBN10: 0820546917

Summary: The rules of evidence can be effectively and directly understood through applied learning methods such as problem-solving. More than just a supplemental source of problems, this book can be used in conjunction with the federal or state rules of evidence and their associated legislative history as an all-purpose guide to the rules of evidence.

Each section commences with a brief explanation of a particular area of evidence law. Next are a wide variety of pro
blems to test understanding of the evidentiary rules and their intended meaning. Methods of presentation of the problems include:
  • Courtroom transcript form
  • Lawyering skills settings such as qualifying an expert, distinguishing and comparing statutes
  • Examination of identifying characteristics that may significantly affect evidentiary rulings such as race, gender, sexual preference and ethnicity.
The primary context in which problem-solving occurs is the courtroom, offering the advantage of facilitating role playing simulations and active student participation. Role-playing allows students to consider different perspectives and focus on how to persuade others to adopt those perspectives. This work can facilitate understanding of the evidence rules, their constitutive framework and offer a broader perspective of how the rules relate to lawyering, legal theory and human nature.
