About Model Witness Examinations, Third Edition
The Rules of Evidence are one thing. The mechanics of correctly eliciting facts -- in the heat of trial -- can be quite another.
In this concise handbook, 70 model examinations show you how to deal effectively with practical evidentiary issues that every trial lawyer faces. The authors--experienced, highly skilled litigators--give you trial-proven, sequences of questions that translate the Rules of Evidence into examinations that will correctly prove facts--and are easily molded to your specific case.
The models cover a broad variety of the basic issues that must be dealt with in direct, cross and redirect, and the use of depositions and interrogatories. Each model starts with a description of a fact situation and is followed by the examination in Q & A format. Following each examination, the authors cite and explain the key cases, rules, and secondary authorities--citations that are readily accessible, even in midtrial--and provide tactical and strategic guidance. Models cover:
Best Evidence or Original Document Problems
Demonstrative and Real Evidence
Opinions of the Lay Witness
Opinions of the Expert
Character, Habit and Custom
Prior Inconsistent Statement; Use of Textbooks
This edition includes new models and updated citations, providing litigators with a clear delineation of the law and issues and a clearly defined structure for proving facts, as well as sophisticated tactics and strategies. Model Witness Examinations, Third Edition is a hands-on guide and a powerful research tool ... before and during trial.
