Topics covered include: • Judicial notice • Judicial rulings • Burdens of proof • Kinds of proof • Relevance • Types of evidence • Witnesses • And more! In both civil and criminal cases, evidence must be introduced to prove a case, but as in all law, it can only be introduced if it passes certain tests. Is a statement hearsay? Are there exceptions to hearsay rules? What kinds of character evidence are acceptable, and when? Who has the final say as to what evidence can be introduced? The admissibility of evidence can win or lose a case, so don’t be caught in the dark; with our newly updated and expanded Evidence guide, color–coded text highlights admissible and inadmissible evidence in our handy, 3–panel format.
