Evidence law constrains the process of proof at trial. In this course, we will study the Federal Rules of Evidence, related case law, and federal constitutional doctrine. We will survey a range of evidence topics, including relevance, hearsay and its exceptions, confrontation, character evidence, impeachment, and expert testimony. A special emphasis in this evidence course is placed on how evidence rules are applied in the courtroom. To enhance learning, a range of teaching techniques will be used, including group exercises, interactive clicker response questions, film clips, and problems based on real trials.
