This class will give students experience in dealing with issues involving the admissibility of evidence from a real-world perspective. Students will learn to lay a foundation for the admissibility at trial of various kinds of evidence. In clinical exercises that simulate a trial, students will practice moving documents into evidence and objecting to their admissibility. Special topics in the admissibility of various kinds of evidence will be explored. The class is designed for students who plan to become litigators and want to learn or practice the skills needed to admit or object to the admission of evidence at trial.
Grading and Method of Evaluation:
