Description

Advanced Evidence adopts a practical and innovative approach for understanding and applying evidence rules from a trial lawyer’s perspective. The book focuses on identifying and raising evidentiary issues before and during trial, like trial attorneys do in real life. The book first examines the core evidence rules that determine what evidence is admissible, emphasizing how advocates should incorporate the rationale behind the rules into effective arguments. The text then explores advocacy considerations of whether, when, and how to raise evidentiary issues through motions in limine. The text also describes how to persuasively draft and argue such motions. Finally, the book examines how to effectively make and respond to evidentiary objections during a trial.
