Product Description

Evidence: A Structured Approach offers a unique, structured approach facilitates learning and motivates students to prepare for class. One Federal Rule of Evidence introduces each section, followed by text explaining the background, rationale, and details of the rule. The text includes numerous diagrams as visual aids to learning and short transcripts that illustrate how the rules are applied in the courtroom.  The authors emphasize the rules over cases, but include edited versions of some judicial opinions, including the seminal cases that every lawyer should know. The heart of the “structured approach” is the Questions for Classroom Discussion, which follow the narrative explanation for each rule. These questions consist of simple hypothetical cases allowing for a step-by-step analysis of each rule. Because students know what will be the focus of class discussion, they quickly learn that preparation pays off.  The book’s website allows students to download the questions directly into their notes before class, freeing students to spend more time listening and thinking while in class.

Hallmark features of Evidence: A Structured Approach:
• Structured approach consists of hypothetical cases that illustrate the rules complements the way that most professors teach evidence law and provides students with a clear focus for classroom discussion
• Teacher’s Manual can function as the core of the professor’s notes, with analysis of each of Questions for Classroom Discussion, capsule descriptions of each case, additional material, and suggested syllabi
• Hearsay chapter includes chains of inference (Statement --> Inference --> Conclusion) to illustrate hearsay and non-hearsay uses of statements
• Streamlined, manageable length
• Impact of new technology on evidence law issues is explored through cases and problems
• Series of short hypotheticals—each illustrating a single aspect of the rule and building on previous questions until the rule is fully explored—facilitates learning and improves student preparation for class  
• Companion website with additional questions and materials for students studying California law; password-protected questions, answers, and materials for professors; and late-breaking Evidence cases and FRE amendments
