The most pervasive change in this volume is the addition of new text, some of it reflecting new issues and developments, but most of it consisting of attempts to explain enduring issues of evidentiary law. Problems have been changed less than the text. The legal landscape is in constant flux, but most of the evidentiary problems that courts must face change far more slowly than do the doctrines used to address those problems. The text is designed for a four-credit course.

This highly efficient casebook offers materials that are thorough and yet brief enough that the subject can be covered in a three- or four- credit course. Each chapter covers an article of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Within the chapters and sections, the materials follow the sequence of the Rules. The Fourth Edition is an update of this popular, concise casebook. It includes the important 2006 decision of the Supreme Court in Davis v. Washington, plus all important recent decisions. These materials are meant to be self-sufficient when accompanied by a current copy of the Rules, and, where appropriate, the rules of a state.

This is the updated edition of the textbook that pioneered the teaching of Evidence using problems rather than appellate opinions. The text explores the Rules of Evidence and their rationales in a straightforward fashion without hiding the ball or ignoring complexities. Problems that clarify the Rules appear throughout the chapters; larger problem sets that explore the Rules in detail are found at the ends of chapters. The updated edition discusses important recent cases and introduces social science findings and recent developments in science and technology that bear on the design and operation of the Rules of Evidence, and on their rationale.

The eighth edition of Evidence Under the Rules: Text, Cases, and Problems, one of the most widely-adopted Evidence coursebooks ever published, has been thoroughly revised and redesigned to be even more teachable and student friendly. A new two-color design enhances the reading experience, and new text boxes (many with photographs) provide interesting background on select cases and additional perspectives on key issues. Many elements, however, remain the same, including: the book’s structuring around the Federal Rules of Evidence; carefully edited cases and secondary materials; and the inclusion of numerous problems that allow students to apply new concepts.
