Prompted by mounting changes and mounting confusion in constitutional evidence law and by the new restyling of the Federal Rules of Evidence, this Edition presents the familiar student-friendly textbook, now with these improvements:

  • Presents and digests the latest Confrontation Clause caselaw, including Williams v. Illinois, 132 S. Ct. 2221 (2012);
  • Fully incorporates the restyled Federal Rules of Evidence;
  • Surveys the latest scholarship and caselaw to assess the current validity of a range of forensic sciences;
  • Presents new cases and problems throughout, while carefully retaining tried-and-true teaching tools, however old, that have shown no sign of wear.

As with past editions, this new text addresses the intricacies of evidentiary law in a way students will find both engaging and intellectually compelling. The casebook and accompanying rulebook are wholly integrated, with paginated cross-references that encourage students to consult legislative history. The accompanying teacher’s manual serves as a multi-resource companion for firsttime evidence instructors.
