Using representative cases, comprehensible scientific readings, and the authors' insightful introductions and explanatory notes, Scientific and Expert Evidence, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive treatment of the law and science relating to scientific and expert evidence. The Second Edition adds new material on statistics and economics and explores some of the issues surrounding the evolving science of DNA as it relates to evidence. This casebook helps students develop a solid grounding in the methods and procedures of science and technology by: Presenting complex issues in a clear and concise way, proceeding from scientific background to cases to illustrative comments and questions. Comprehensive coverage that ranges from forensics to medical causation to statistics to economic expert evidence. Providing a balanced mixture of cases, journal articles, and excerpts from the Scientific Evidence Manual. Explaining the technical material in the statistics and the DNA chapters with accessible language that avoids superficial treatment of the issues. Teaching students to become sophisticated consumers of expert evidence, capable of skeptical analysis of opposition claims and critical thought about theoretical problems of expert testimony. Clarifying the different goals and methods of law and science to allow students to discern when and how these differences can be harmonized. New to the Second Edition: Lengthier explanations of basic statistical concepts, with more examples and illustrations, in both the text and the teacher's manual. Additional economics cases. Treatment in the text of evolving DNA science, including expanded coverage of mitochondrial DNA analysis, toxicogenomics, and the vanishing notion of "junk" DNA. An expanded textual treatment of the sometimes-conflicting legal and scientific ideas of causation and proof.

Evidence: A Structured Approach offers a unique, structured approach facilitates learning and motivates students to prepare for class. One Federal Rule of Evidence introduces each section, followed by text explaining the background, rationale, and details of the rule. The text includes numerous diagrams as visual aids to learning and short transcripts that illustrate how the rules are applied in the courtroom. The authors emphasize the rules over cases, but include edited versions of some judicial opinions, including the seminal cases that every lawyer should know. The heart of the “structured approach” is the Questions for Classroom Discussion, which follow the narrative explanation for each rule. These questions consist of simple hypothetical cases allowing for a step-by-step analysis of each rule. Because students know what will be the focus of class discussion, they quickly learn that preparation pays off. The book’s website allows students to download the questions directly into their notes before class, freeing students to spend more time listening and thinking while in class.

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 casebook is designed to engage students with a wide range of learning styles and to explore evidence law from the eyes of an advocate. Through a problem-centered approach that focuses on the gray areas of the Federal Rules of Evidence, students will develop a heightened sensitivity to factual and legal arguments that govern the admissibility of evidence. This focus on legal argumentation allows students to actively cultivate an understanding of the legal doctrine behind the Federal Rules of Evidence as well as the role that facts and narrative play in legal reasoning. Exercises, visual aids, and video supplements in each chapter allow students to assess their learning.A single thread that runs through the book is video and case materials surrounding a North Carolina murder trial, State v. Peterson. The trial was memorialized in an award-winning documentary, The Staircase, directed by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. The casebook follows the trial, including the strategies undertaken by counsel and the battles over evidentiary issues that shaped both sides' narratives in the trial. Video excerpts will be provided to the instructor to add a further dimension to student learning and to reach a broad array of learning styles.The Teacher's Manual will include pedagogical analysis, visual aids related to the text, questions and exercises designed to be used in or out of class, and video excerpts from The Staircase.This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law & Associate Dean for Faculty and Academic Development, Washburn University School of Law.
