  • Description

    Volume One of Problems and Materials in Evidence and Trial Advocacy contains two fictional case files, containing material similar to what trial lawyers have as they approach trial. The first file is a murder case, where the issue is the identity of the killer, and the defendant is the estranged husband of the victim. The second file is a civil action for defamation brought by a former employee against her very wealthy employer. Both cases present engaging fact patterns as they introduce lawyers to the rigors of evidence rules. Both raise realistic and challenging issues in the law of evidence and allow for a critical assessment of that law. The cases are designed to raise realistic and challenging issues in trial theory and practice and in the law of evidence. Volume Twois the workbook for coordinated courses in Evidence and Trial Advocacy. It contains over three hundred problems in evidence law and over sixty exercises in trial advocacy.
