Evidentiary Foundations, Seventh Edition (GBach)

by Edward J. Imwinkelried

Blurb

Covering all major evidentiary doctrines, the text provides a blueprint for introduction of evidence at trial. It enables the student to convert a sentence in the Federal Rules of Evidence into a line of questioning to be used at trial. A useful companion to a coursebook in Evidence or Trial Practice, Evidentiary Foundations enables the student to picture the manner in which the rules of evidence operate. After a brief narrative discussion, the book dissects each major evidentiary doctrine into a list of foundational elements. The book then sets out an illustrative foundation, establishing all the predicate elements. This foundation gives the student a more concrete understanding of the evidence rule to which the foundation relates. The Seventh Edition not only updates the narrative discussion with recent citations; even more importantly, the new edition also includes an analysis of the processes of laying foundations and introducing evidence in courtrooms with modern computer technology.
