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 in court. 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 Tenth Edition covers the latest amendments to Rules 801 and 902, including a detailed treatment of the new self-authentication provisions in 902(13) and 902(14). It also updates the foundations for social media postings, scanned writings, automated surveillance cameras, and the impact of Williams v. Illinois on expert testimony. Over the years, the various editions of Evidentiary Foundations have been used as a required or recommended supplementary text at over 140 law schools.

Using both problems and simulations, this set of materials is designed to teach the reader to approach Evidence in a systematic manner; to analyze both legal doctrine and the factual setting in which that doctrine works. Perhaps the most unique aspect of these materials is the use of simulation. While many of the simulations contained in this book are done in the classroom and involve direct and cross-examination, many others involve non-courtroom situations and are designed to be performed outside the classroom. Many of the simulations performed outside the classroom are followed by questionnaires. When these questionnaires are answered after the exercise, they should provide immediate feedback on the reader's understanding of the evidentiary principles involved. Like the prior edition published in 2004, this new edition analyzes both legal doctrine and the factual setting in which that doctrine works, thus allowing professors to teach evidence in a systematic manner. Problems and Simulations also enables professors to integrate practical skills and values into their evidence course. Additionally: • Each chapter in the book includes realistic examples of how the evidentiary rule discussed is used in practice; • The problems within each chapter or section begin with basic concepts and build in complexity; • Many problems are presented in the context of witness examinations (often word for word from transcripts); • There are problems involving interviewing, counseling, negotiation, fact investigation, office policies and the like; and • Simulations are also included with the problems and integrated throughout the book While many of the simulations included in the book are to be used in the classroom and involve direct and cross-examination. There are also many simulations involving non -courtroom situations that can be performed outside the classroom. The simulations performed outside the classroom are followed by questionnaires designed to provide immediate feedback on students understanding of the evidentiary principles involved. This new edition also contains two Performance Tests to expose students to the type of examination they likely will take after law school. The author originally wrote these performance tests for the California Bar Examination as a member of its Performance Test Editing Team.

Evidence law is meant to facilitate trials that are fair, accurate, and efficient, and that encourage and protect important societal values and relationships. In pursuit of these often-conflicting goals, common law judges and modern drafting committees have had to perform as amateur applied psychologists. Their task has required them to employ what they think they know about the ability and motivations of witnesses to perceive, store, and retrieve information; about the effects of the litigation process on testimony and other evidence; and about our capacity to comprehend and evaluate evidence. These are the same phenomena that cognitive and social psychologists systematically study. The rules of evidence have evolved to restrain lawyers from using the most robust weapons of influence, and to direct judges to exclude certain categories of information, limit it, or instruct juries on how to think about it. Evidence law regulates the form of questions lawyers may ask, filters expert testimony, requires witnesses to take oaths, and aims to give lawyers and factfinders the tools they need to assess witnesses’ reliability. But without a thorough grounding in psychology, is the “common sense” of the rulemakers as they create these rules always, or even usually, correct? And when it is not, how can the rules be fixed? Addressed to those in both law and psychology, The Psychological Foundations of Evidence Law draws on the best current psychological research-based knowledge to identify and evaluate the choices implicit in the rules of evidence, and to suggest alternatives that psychology reveals as better for accomplishing the law’s goals.
