Evidence deals with the law governing the proof of disputed issues of fact, functions of the court and jury, competence and examination of witnesses, standards of relevancy, privileged communications, inadmissible evidence, the hearsay rule, the best evidence rule, presumptions, judicial notice and other evidentiary concepts. In this course, we will explore these principles with particular attention to the Federal Rules of Evidence. Students will also practice applying the rules by examining witnesses arguing pre-trial motions.
