LAW 211 - Evidence

The course will focus on the usual range of evidentiary topics: relevance, hearsay, character evidence, documentary evidence, opinions, confrontation, burdens and presumptions, and problems in the examination of witnesses. We will explore various ways of treating these issues, with emphasis on the approaches of the Federal Rules of Evidence and the California Evidence Code.
