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 primarily taught by the problem method, with a focus on the practical application of the rules in a trial setting. 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 Trial Advocacy or clinical courses.
