Table of contents

Volume One of Problems and Materials in Evidence and Trial Advocacy contains two fictional case files, containing material similar to that trial lawyers may have as they approach trial. The first file is a murder case, where the issue is the identity of the killer and the defendant is the estranged husband of the victim. The second file is a civil action for defamation brought by a former employee against her very wealthy employer. Both cases present engaging fact patterns as they introduce lawyers to the rigors of evidence rules. Both raise realistic and challenging issues in the law of evidence and allow for a critical assessment of that law. The cases are designed to raise realistic and challenging issues in trial theory and practice and in the law of evidence. The book is designed to be used with Volume II of Problems and Materials, which contains over three hundred problems in evidence and over sixty exercises in trial advocacy based on the files.
