Covering all major evidentiary doctrines, this work provides a blueprint for introduction of evidence at trial. It allows the student mentally to convert a sentence in the Federal Rules of Evidence into a line of questioning to be used at trial. An excellent companion to a course casebook in Evidence or Trial Practice, it enables the student to picture the manner in which the rules of evidence operate. The author dissects major evidence doctrines into lists of foundational elements. With this framework, lists of questions form which lay a foundation. This sample foundation, in turn, allows fuller understanding of the evidence rule to which it refers.
