Abstract:

"Inspired by problems that spring from real life, this casebook presents the intricacies of evidentiary law in a way that law students will find both intellectually compelling and enjoyable. Many of the problems are based on facts taken from cases or news articles, complete with citations, and this fact-based approach piques student interest. This fact-based approach piques student interest, causing them to ask, "How would a good lawyer attack this problem?" rather than "What is the professor driving at?" Based on the belief that students typically prefer to look at the courtroom through the criminal law lens, the casebook emphasizes the criminal context, while using civil cases when illustrating rules that apply mainly in the civil context."--Publisher's Website.
