Inspired by problems that spring from real life, Evidence presents the intricacies of evidence law in a way that law students will find both intellectually compelling and enjoyable. The author covers materials in detail, including relevance, reliability, and privileges. Whenever possible, problems are based on facts quoted from cases or news articles, complete with citations. This fact-based approach piques student interest, causing them to ask, How would a good lawyer attack this problem? rather than What is the professor driving at? Written with the belief that students typically prefer to look at the courtroom world through the criminal law lense, the casebook emphasizes the criminal context, while using civil cases when illustrating rules that apply mainly in the civil context.
