Spring 2018
LAW208  B  EVIDENCE

Course Description
This 4-credit Evidence course is designed for students interested in litigation. Although it is in many ways a traditional course, we will discuss evidence law from a strategic perspective – as litigators trying to enter or exclude certain evidence. To that end, students will be required to analyze hypotheticals and stand and make oral arguments. Substantively, the course will cover the law of evidence as applied in both civil and criminal proceedings throughout the United States. The focus will be on the Federal Rules of Evidence, which now have been adopted through codification in a vast majority of states. These will be examined in detail with reference both to their common law background and to their subsequent interpretation.
