Well-known and experienced authors, highly respected in the clinical field, Thomas A. Mauet and Warren D. Wolfson provide a complete review of the effective use of evidence in a trial setting. Trial Evidence, Seventh Editionis structured around the way judges and trial lawyers think about evidentiary rules, with particular focus on the Federal Rules of Evidence. Abundant real-life courtroom vignettes illustrate how evidentiary issues arise, both before and during a trial. Logical content organization follows the sequence of a trial: opening statement, direct examination, cross examination, and closing arguments. “Law and Practice” sections throughout the book are based on actual federal and state cases and bring decades of practical experience into the evidence classroom. The accessible style of Trial Evidence always focuses on practice over theory, on applying the statute rather than reading it.

  • Revised and expanded Sec. 7.1 and other sections dealing with the Sixth Amendment Confrontation Clause, including a broader understanding of the Supreme Court’s decisions of Bryant v. Michigan and Clark v. Ohio.

Colorado, which held the FRE 606(b) rule barring impeachment of a jury verdict is trumped by the Sixth Amendment when there is a showing that a deliberating juror was racially biased against the defendant
