Evidence law regulates the proof of facts at trial and reflects the construction of courtroom truth. In this course, we will examine the Federal Rules of Evidence and explore some aspects of their practical application. The course will cover: relevance, character, impeachment, and hearsay. We will look at the rules and cases to analyze how evidence law may perpetuate and influence the cultural values, legal rules, and social norms that our society uses to assess credibility. This course will include a final exam.
