Book Overview
Well-known and experienced authors, highly respected in the clinical field, Thomas A. Mauet and Warren D. Wolfson provide a complete review of the effective use of evidence in a trial setting. Trial Evidence, Seventh Edition is structured around the way judges and trial lawyers think about evidentiary rules, with particular focus on the Federal Rules of Evidence. Abundant real-life courtroom vignettes illustrate how evidentiary issues arise, both before and during a trial. Logical content organization follows the sequence of a trial: opening statement, direct examination, cross examination, and closing arguments. Law and Practice sections throughout the book are based on actual federal and state cases and bring decades of practical experience into the evidence classroom. The accessible style of Trial Evidence always focuses on practice over theory, on applying the statute rather than reading it.
