Course Number: 
John L. Carroll

The required books for our course are  Lempert, Gross, Liebman, Landsman & Lederer, A Modern Approach to Evidence,(5th Ed.2014)(West) and Federal Rules of Evidence, 2013-2014 Edition (West).

The assignment for the first two classes is to read pages 1-140 in the Modern Approach to Evidence text. Pages 1-15 are an introduction to what goes on at a trial and pages 15-140 is a transcript of an actual case. You need to read the transcript but you will not be called on individually to answer any specific questions about the transcript. We will discuss the transcript and the proceedings it describes in detail to help you begin to get a context for the course.

I look forward to seeing all of you on Monday.
