Best Evidence Supplements

Postby Garinold » Tue Mar 09, 2010 6:44 pm

As my 1L year is almost done I have learned that the Trial Advocacy Board/Team is definitely something I'll be trying out for next semester. As my school has a reputation for running good teams, I'm not in this simply for the fun of it, but to do well. So I am curious for those of you that have don't Trial-Ad or have done well in your evidence courses, what is the best supplement on the market right now?

While I plan to take the evidence course next semester, my intention is to start working on evidence somewhat over the summer for the purposes of making TAB. In addition to reading an evidence supplement, I also have plans to work through this http://www.amazon.com/Winning-Winner-Hi ... 315&sr=8-1.

Assuming you are trying to learn the federal rules of evidence then the E&E would be the best. Don't bother reading the examples, but there is a section in the back of the book that has every single federal rule followed with an explanation of the rule (basically restates the rule in English and its implications). Additionally, if that brief explanation doesn't cut it for you, then there is a longer explanation of the rule in the text of the book (which is cross-referenced in the explanation in the back of the book).

I am using "A Student's Guide to Trial Objections" by Charles B. Gibbons. So far I have found it helpful.

Not the nutshell.

My prof assigned it as part of the reading (he was the author). It was more confusing than anything else.
