The Kentucky Evidence Law Handbook delivers quick, accurate answers to evidence questions from the principal author of the Kentucky Rules of Evidence, Robert G. Lawson, providing step-by-step commentary on the law of evidence in Kentucky.

The current edition of the Handbook provides complete coverage of all Kentucky decisions (Supreme Court and Court of Appeals) that construe or apply the Kentucky Rules of Evidence, and comprehensive coverage of both pre-Rules decisions and federal cases that provide helpful guidance on using the Rules of Evidence or are likely to be influential with the Kentucky courts.

When the pace quickens in court and you need an answer fast, the index leads you directly to the topics that typically arise at trial and appeal, such as:
•  Relevance
•  Impeachment of witnesses
•  Competency of witnesses
•  Witness testimony
•  Documentary, real, demonstrative, and opinion evidence
•  Hearsay
•  Authentication
•  Best Evidence Rule
•  Grounds for challenge
•  The Collective Knowledge Rule
•  Questioning expert witnesses
