The 11th edition of this intellectually challenging casebook provides a complete overview of evidence, including key U.S. Supreme Court and other court opinions, updated information on scientific evidence, new questions and hypotheticals, and common courtroom objections A distinguished new author has joined the book. Richard D. Friedman is the Ralph W. Aigler Professor of Law at the University of Michigan. Professor Friedman is a prolific scholar on evidence law and evidence theory. His work includes articles advocating the Confrontation Clause approach that was eventually adopted by the Supreme Court in the Crawford case. In 2006, he successfully argued the Hammon case (the companion case to Davis v. Washington) before the Supreme Court. He is also the General Editor of The New Wigmore: A Treatise on Evidence. The 11th Edition adds three important new Supreme Court cases on the right to confrontation and on the right to present evidence. In the 11th Edition, the chapters on Presumptions, Judicial Notice, and Governmental Privileges have been extensively updated. Recent cases have been added to other chapters in order to provide comtemporaneous examples of long-standing principles. Oversized cases have been edited to reduce length. The authors have continued the practice of choosing cases on the basis of teachability. Teaching favorites that have stood the test of time have been retained, and new cases that promise to be fun to teach have been added. An updated version of the much-admired Teacher's Manual will be published at the same time as the 11th Edition.
