This concise casebook offers materials that are thorough yet brief, enabling coverage of all the major topics in a three or four credit format. The emphasis is decidedly on primary materials: well-edited principal cases followed by notes that inform the student on important details and developments. Each chapter covers an article of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Within the chapters and sections, the materials generally follow the sequence of the Rules. The Sixth Edition covers all important recent developments, including the promulgation of the Restyled Federal Rules of Evidence and the Supreme Courts decisions in Michigan v. Bryant (2011) and Bullcoming v. New Mexico (2011).
