Evidentiary Objections & Foundations is a practical course designed to enrich students’ understanding of the Federal Rules of Evidence and their application in a trial setting. Through a series of exercises, which simulate pretrial motions and witness examinations, students develop the skills to advocate for and against the admissibility of evidence at trial. The trial simulation exercises help students master laying foundations for various types of evidence, making evidentiary proffers, and objecting to evidence. Additionally, students prepare their own witnesses to testify, learn how evidentiary rules can be used both strategically and tactically, and reconcile any ethical issues and resulting constraints on courtroom behavior.
