Evidence, the California Code and the Federal Rules

Hardback
This coursebook provides a systematic comparison of the Evidence Code's and Federal Rules' approaches to admissibility. Transcripts of witness examinations help students visualize the process of presenting and objecting to evidence. The book combines the problem and witness examination approach with text, not cases, that sets out the law of evidence in a clear and concise manner. It discusses major cases and the policies and concepts underlying the rules, not just the rules themselves. The end of each chapter includes the text of the code sections and rules discussed in that chapter. A teacher's manual is available to adopting professors.
