Using both problems and simulations, this set of materials is designed to teach the reader to approach Evidence in a systematic manner; to analyze both legal doctrine and the factual setting in which that doctrine works. Perhaps the most unique aspect of these materials is the use of simulation. While many of the simulations contained in this book are done in the classroom and involve direct and cross-examination, many others involve non-courtroom situations and are designed to be performed outside the classroom. Many of the simulations performed outside the classroom are followed by questionnaires. When these questionnaires are answered after the exercise, they should provide immediate feedback on the reader's understanding of the evidentiary principles involved. Like the prior edition published in 2004, this new edition analyzes both legal doctrine and the factual setting in which that doctrine works, thus allowing professors to teach evidence in a systematic manner. Problems and Simulations also enables professors to integrate practical skills and values into their evidence course. Additionally: • Each chapter in the book includes realistic examples of how the evidentiary rule discussed is used in practice; • The problems within each chapter or section begin with basic concepts and build in complexity; • Many problems are presented in the context of witness examinations (often word for word from transcripts); • There are problems involving interviewing, counseling, negotiation, fact investigation, office policies and the like; and • Simulations are also included with the problems and integrated throughout the book While many of the simulations included in the book are to be used in the classroom and involve direct and cross-examination. There are also many simulations involving non -courtroom situations that can be performed outside the classroom. The simulations performed outside the classroom are followed by questionnaires designed to provide immediate feedback on students understanding of the evidentiary principles involved. This new edition also contains two Performance Tests to expose students to the type of examination they likely will take after law school. The author originally wrote these performance tests for the California Bar Examination as a member of its Performance Test Editing Team.

Texas Rules of Evidence Manual provides an updated comprehensive reference to Texas evidence for both civil and criminal cases. The book provides a rule-by-rule analysis of each Rule of Evidence. This sturdy hard-cover text is designed for heavy use in the courtroom. This text helps those who are bound to use the Texas Rules of Evidence, whether it is the bench or the bar or those studying evidence. While the text contains some academic discussions, the book is designed to explain what a particular Rule requires or prohibits, to indicate what the appellate courts have said about the Rules, and to offer some practical pointers on using the Rules. The book itself has been designed to make it as useful as possible to the harried judge, counsel, and student who must quickly find the "law." Following each Rule is an editorial commentary on the Rule explaining how the Rule works, what the Texas courts have said about the Rule, and how it compares with the Federal Rule, because Texas courts often review federal precedent where they find it helpful in applying a Texas Rule. When appropriate, practical pointers are also provided on how to use the Rule. Where the Rules apply in the same fashion for both civil and criminal cases, those points are discussed together. On the other hand, where they diverge, the authors have used separate headings for "Civil" and "Criminal" when that seems appropriate. One of the objectives of the Editorial Analysis in this text is to deal with the interrelationships of the various Rules. The authors have noted those areas where the Rules differ from pre-Rules case law or statutory provisions. Some of the Rules changed the prior Texas evidence law and, althoughmany of the Texas Rules agree with the Federal Rules, a number differ significantly.
