The new edition is carefully edited to provide broad coverage of the issues in a manageably sized (900-page) casebook. The author's commentaries provide students with background material and analysis to supplement the cases and statutory materials. Criminal Procedure is such a detailed subject, with such an enormous amount of case law, that it is very easy to become lost in the minutiae. The Third Edition keeps the students' attention focused on the forest rather than the trees by introducing them to the "big picture" at the beginning, and then showing them how each detailed issue relates to the major themes.

Evidence

A Problem-Based and Comparative Approach

Category: Law

Page: 839

This casebook provides a comprehensive, problem-based approach to studying the rules of evidence. Organized around the federal rules, this casebook provides coverage of every single rule; yet, through careful case choice and editing, Professor Nicolas has produced a book that can easily be taught from cover-to-cover in as few as three semester hours. Key features of the casebook include approximately 115 in-depth problems that are designed to teach all the nuances of the rules, as well as coverage of selected state rules of evidence that differ significantly from the federal rules designed to facilitate class discussion about the policies underlying the rules of evidence. In addition, the casebook contains an enriched section on scientific evidence, in-depth coverage of the rules to electronic evidence, and a chapter on appellate review of evidentiary rulings. The third edition of the casebook builds on the strengths of the second edition while at the same time updating it to reflect recent developments. The text of the third edition has been revised to reflect the language of the Restyled Federal Rules of Evidence, which take effect in December 2011. The third edition will contain edited versions of the Supreme Court's most recent Confrontation Clause decisions, including Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts, Michigan v. Bryant, and Bullcoming v. New Mexico. The third edition will also include recent decisions applying the rules of evidence to electronic evidence, including cases involving information found on social networking websites. In addition, the third edition contains expanded coverage of state rules of evidence that differ significantly from the federal rules. Finally, in an effort to keep the book manageable in length, Professor Nicolas has—as a general rule—tried to remove a page of material for every new page added. An annual supplement is produced each year that includes the latest developments in evidence law so as to keep the textbook up-to-date between editions. A separate statutory supplement includes the federal rules of evidence and selected legislative history. In addition, the Teacher's Manual includes detailed answers to all of the problems contained in the casebook.
