Product details

This volume is specially intended for trial lawyers and federal district and magistrate judges who try cases in federal court. It is a trial book, designed to ease the task of dealing with evidence issues under the fierce time constraints and pressures that trials, especially jury trials, place on all participants. This volume attempts to identify the evidence issues that arise with some frequency in federal civil and criminal trials. With respect to each issue, there are suggestions as to what the responsibility is of (1) a lawyer who objects to evidence, (2) a lawyer who overcomes an objection, (3) a lawyer whose evidence is excluded, and (4) a trial judge who wants to make a solid record and to be certain that the jury is properly instructed.
