Evidence



SLN #: 73062
Course Prefix: LAW-605
Course Section: 001
Credit Hours: 4
Instructor(s): Bartels

Course Description:
Evidence covers the basic rules that govern the admissibility of evidence in civil and criminal trial proceedings. The primary focus is on how the Federal Rules of Evidence operate in practice, with some attention to areas in which the Arizona Rules of Evidence differ from the Federal Rules. The course is taught by the problem method, with occasional simulations designed to illustrate how litigators deal with witness testimony and other forms of evidence at trial. This is a complex and difficult subject, but one that most practicing lawyers -- including non-litigators -- need to know; and it would be an especially tough subject to try to learn from scratch from a bar review course. Students should make every effort to take Evidence before taking Practice Court or clinical courses
