Skills & Values: Evidence is one of the first titles in the new Skills & Values Series. The books in this new series are designed to enable professors to assign supplementary practice-oriented material to enrich their students' traditional study. Each book in the series includes robust online content that is delivered through Web Courses. The content for the Teacher's Manual is also posted to the supporting Web Course. The online components of these books add an exciting dimension because they are designed to teach the current media-saturated generation of students in ways that are more effective for them. Skills & Values: Evidence challenges students to apply the substantive content from their Evidence course in a way that helps them see what the doctrinal law of Evidence looks like when it "crosses a lawyer's desk". Each chapter offers a stand-alone exercise which focuses on a particular rule under the Federal Rules of Evidence. The exercises-which often include documents, diagrams, photographs, and trial transcripts-require students to put doctrine into action. Sometimes students are directed to make an argument to the trial court; other times, they are directed to conduct discovery, interview witnesses, examine witnesses on the stand to lay evidentiary foundations, or voir dire those witnesses to weaken the foundation. The materials are designed to allow students to self-assess, thus enhancing the learning experience while allowing professors maximum flexibility to choose the level of their own engagement.

Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here.
