The Law of Evidence in the District of Columbia has been a practice staple in the District of Columbia courts for more than 40 years. It is an invaluable tool for analyzing threshold evidence issues during trial preparation, and for finding quick answers to evidence questions at trial. It is particularly useful to practitioners who appear in both the local and federal courts of the District of Columbia.

Each Federal Rule of Evidence is set forth at the outset of a section. Since Federal Rules are not applicable in the District of Columbia, the treatise next provides a concise comment comparing the particular Federal Rule with DC court local practice. The treatise then presents case annotations showing the development and current state of the law in the local courts. Given the influence of its pronouncements, case annotations of the United States Supreme Court are also included. An Historical Appendix includes legislative history, as appropriate, for each Federal Rule of Evidence included in Chapters 1 through 11.
