Evidence Skills Workshop

The Evidence Skills Workshop is based on one simple premise – “The best way to learn the rules of evidence is to argue them in an evidentiary hearing in which the admissibility of evidence is determined.”

This workshop is all workshop, no lecture.  Participants argue the admissibility of evidence in 21 evidentiary vignettes.  Topics covered include:  

  • Evidentiary foundations
  • Authenticity of physical evidence
  • Expert Opinion
  • Lay Opinion
  • Business records and other hearsay exceptions
  • Expert qualifications and hypothetical questions
  • Written and oral motions in limine
  • Witness qualifications
  • Chain of custody
  • Evidence Code Section 352
  • The Best Evidence Rule
  • Scientific evidence
  • Judicial notice 

Written course materials will be distributed via e-mail prior to the first class. Please make sure we have your correct e-mail address at the time of registration.
