This book breaks with tradition to provide both a theoretical and practical understanding of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Under the principle that learning is most effective when it is both challenging and fun, the book includes numerous courtroom-based problems, both to facilitate the students' theoretical understanding of the rules and to develop their ability to apply evidence rules in practice.

Evidence Law and Practice consistently provides examples, practice hints, explanations and illustrations in the form of mini-transcripts. Each chapter begins with a checklist of important questions to be addressed for each subject area, followed by the pertinent provisions of the Federal Rules of Evidence, a subject overview, illustrations, examples, and problems. While appellate court opinions are not the primary text of this book, the ways that judges discuss evidence rules are important and a useful basis for classroom discussions.
Consequently, many chapters provide summarized versions of relevant opinions, and provided web addresses for the opinions.

Features of the Sixth Edition include:

•  A new Appendix 2 setting forth California Evidence Code provisions that differ in significant ways from the Federal Rules of Evidence.
•  Many of the review problems that were previously in Chapter 19 have been scrapped and replaced by a set of Multiple Choice questions (and answers). Since many Evidence examinations include multiple choice questions, we hope that the revised version of Chapter 19 will be especially helpful to students. The review problems being replaced are available to professors on the LexisNexis Webcourse created for this book.

This book also is available in a heavily discounted, three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8 ½ x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
