Evidence isn't really state-specific. IIRC 40+ states have based their rules around the FRE. If you learn the FRE, you will have a good grasp at the basics and then it will be easier to pick up the minor state-specific variations. It was a really valuable class for me, but your experience may vary.


Having done courtroom work in 3 states now, unless I've been extremely unlucky in landing outside of those 40, the rules and procedures varied quite a bit.

But I'm not talking about the foundational shit. Hearsay will be hearsay, leading is leading.

In CA I would say evidence because you can be certified to appear in Court while taking evidence, but you don't need crim pro to be certified. Some states require both to be able to appear in court as a student. Your state appears to be different, because it is hard to get a FT position in the PD or DA office if you aren't able to get certification here.

And you have a FT paid position, or a FT externship? I am curious to know what state you are in. But I understand not wanting to share.

How much money would it take for you to lick a hairy asshole?
