About the Book

This book is among the first of Aspenís new suite of casebooks that embody a contemporary philosophy of legal education, with features that will better prepare students for bar passage and law practice.

The print volume comes bundled with an enhanced VitalSource ebook (with links to videos, flashcards, and self-assessments), The Wolters Kluwer Bouvier Law Dictionary ebook, and a print supplement featuring the Federal Rules of Evidence and practice-ready problems. Students also get access to the Law Simulation platform ó an interactive environment that trains students to perform real-world tasks within a law office. PLEASE NOTE: If you purchase a used, unsealed copy of this book, access to the digital components and print supplement requires a separate purchase.

Very clear organization and straightforward introductory material for each section and case make Evidence: Practice, Problems, and Rules an important new text in the field. A tested selection of interesting modern cases help students remember the rules, recognize difficult issues of application, examine the policy choices inherent in the rules, and build their case-reading and analytical skills. Concise notes, relatively few in number, maximize the likelihood that students will engage with them. Examples of provocative minority approaches frame the Federal Rules choices. Essay-style problems and multiple-choice questions are presented along with suggested analyses for both.
