Course Description

LAW 790 - Evidence Objections and Arguments

This course is a concise—but through--review of Evidence law in context—as part of summary judgment motions, arbitration, pretrial motions in limine, and objections at trial.  Each class session will require advance written exercises and oral argument, focusing on the most difficult evidence problems as they appear in practice--with multiple objections aimed at the same piece of evidence, although one issue or objection may predominate.  Topics reviewed include relevance, character evidence, impeachment, hearsay, authentication, best evidence rule, expert testimony, evidentiary privileges.
