A VTLA classic publication, Virginia Evidence of the Trial Lawyer has been completely revised in conformity with the new Virginia Rules of Evidence to provide a useful guide and resource to practicing trial lawyers. Written by two leading attorneys in Virginia, this valuable resource offers practical guidance and authoritative commentary on the laws and rules that govern the collection and presentation of evidence in a trial. This publication carefully analyzes each topic within the context of relevant primary and secondary sources such as state and federal statutes, rules of evidence, and court rulings, and provides a comprehensive framework for understanding and interpreting the law of trial evidence in Virginia.

Topics covered in this revised edition include:
      • Objections
      • Motions
      • Relevancy
      • Privileges
      • Witnesses
      • Experts
      • Opinion Testimony
      • Hearsay
      • Authentication and Identifications
      • And much more!

Complete with an appendix containing the Federal Rules of Evidence, this enhanced new edition is convenient and portable. It is sure to be an essential resource for trial practice in Virginia. Before July 1, 2012, Virginia did not have a full-fledged set of evidence, but made do with common law and evidence-related provisions scattered in parts of the state code. The rules aim to restate existing Virginia evidentiary principles, not to change or overturn existing law.

The Virginia rules of evidence use the same numbering system used in the Federal rules of evidence for convenience purposes only. Unless a specific Federal Rule of Evidence is already incorporated in Virginia common or statutory law, the Virginia rules will not have any correlation with the federal rule.

This 2015 edition of Evidence for the Trial Lawyer has been completely revised in conformity with the new Virginia Rules of Evidence to provide a useful guide and resource to practicing trial lawyers.
