Publish Date: 2016-10-24
Author: Olin Wellborn III
This concise casebook offers materials that are thorough yet brief, enabling coverage of all the major topics in a three- or four-credit format. The emphasis is decidedly on primary materials: well-edited principal cases, followed by notes that inform the student on important details and developments. Each chapter covers an article of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Within the chapters and sections, the materials generally follow the sequence of the Rules. The 7th edition covers all important recent developments, including federal and state court decisions interpreting the Rules, the 2014 addition of Rule 801(d)(1)(B)(ii), recent Supreme Court Confrontation Clause decisions such as Williams v. Illinois and Ohio v. Clark, and state and lower federal court interpretations of them.
