This book covers the Federal Rules of Evidence ("the Rules"), as amended through 1 December 2014, effective 1 July 2015.
In the hurried pace of lawyering, quick access to detailed, accurate information is a must. Whether you are preparing for a hearing or a trial in the federal court system or you are in the courtroom itself, you need to know what evidence is admissible and what isn't.
The Federal Rules of Evidence dictate the parameters of your judgments and the judge's decisionmaking. While relatively short in length, the Federal Rules of Evidence are packed with legal and factual information that often goes overlooked. This book "unpacks" that information and presents it in an A to Z topical format.
Each of the over 200 evidentiary topics covered in this book is complete in its scope, either by way of discussion or reference(s) to other topics discussed in detail elsewhere in the book. This book is written with clarity and precision and is replete with supporting authority so that you can find, with confidence, what you need to know, when you need to know it, outside and inside the courtroom.
