Why it is relevant for ...

[ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Foundational Course : Litigators, regardless of their practice focus, must have a firm grasp of the rules of evidence and other fundamental procedures of civil litigation. Fundamental procedures, for example, set out what actions are required or permitted before, during and after the trial process itself. Evidence is useful to take early in law school, particularly if a student wants to practice before the courts in a clinic or externship. Most public interest lawyers will represent stakeholders and causes before administrative and other rule-making bodies as well as in the courtroom, so they also need an understanding of government processes in the executive and legislative branches. In addition to Evidence, courses on Administrative Law and Legislation provide a framework for public interest lawyers likely to engage all three branches of government.

General course Description:

Evidence rules constrain proof at criminal and civil trials. We will study the Federal Rules of Evidence, related case law, and those constitutional concepts that limit proof at criminal trials. Topics include relevance, unfair prejudice, character evidence, impeachment, the rape shield law, hearsay, the Confrontation Clause, and¿if time permits¿expert testimony. Please note that the California Bar Examiners have posted this announcement: Applicants should be prepared to answer questions that have issues concerning the Federal Rules of Evidence and the California Evidence Code. Applicants should be prepared to compare and contrast the differences between the Federal Rules and the California Evidence Code, especially where the California rules of evidence have no specific counterparts in the Federal Rules. This evidence course covers only the Federal Rules of Evidence and does not address the California Evidence Code. Although similar principles of law govern the California Code and Federal Rules, the two sets of rules are not identical. Students preparing for the California Bar Exam will have to learn some new material.

Course Style: A Substantive/Statutory course deals with law, theory, and policy in the context of a particular code or statutory scheme.

Course Frequency: Offered twice a year
