Evidence checklist?

Postby rawrab » Thu Dec 06, 2012 3:56 pm

Does anyone have any advice on where to find a good checklist/short outline type outline for Evidence? Ideally something that would provide the steps that you should go through when analyzing an evidence problem. I can't seem to find any good ones, everything I've found evidence related is super long, like my outline that is 75 pages (I'm screwed).

Dang, I was going to offer my 24-page "mini-outline," (condensed from an 80-page full-outline) but that link is superb! I wish I had that on my final!!

Anyone else have a checklist like this? I was thinking of something that helps you determine what Rules your piece of evidence falls under. Say, a list that tells you, "If you see a document, look to the Business Records Rule."


Yeah something like that would be awesome. Maybe like Step 1. Is it relevant? Step 2. 403 Step 3...

That's tough to have because if an item is hearsay, asking whether it's relevant may not be the first step to take in examining it. i.e., is an out of court statement, how is it being used, are there exceptions etc.

In the Emmanuel's book though, they have some roadmaps in handling certain scenarios. I'd check that out.

I have the Emmanuel outline and I'm not seeing what you're referencing. Page number? thanks!

Specifically for Rule 609, whether a certain conviction can come in for impeachment purposes, there is a step-by-step analysis. It's in Chapter 4.
