Product Description

This Evidence: Cases and Materials was written to impress upon students that the law of evidence remains far from "federalized." Many states remain without local counterparts to the Federal Rules of Evidence and, even where such counterparts exist, state law frequently varies substantially from the federal pattern. These considerations, together with the fact that vast areas of evidence are outside the purview of the federal rules, warrant continuing attention to state law.
