Post-COVID evidence refresher - anyone need help?

Posted by Joe Bodiford on

Rusty.  That's what happens when you don't use a skill - you get rusty.  That can be said of anything from golf to drawing.  Trial advocacy is no different.  If it has been a while since your last trial, you are probably a little rusty.

Hearsay - out of court statement, offered for the proof of the matter asserted . . . six points for authentication of business records . . . leading . . . best evidence . . . and the list goes on.

eLEX's ULTIMATE Guide is perfect for going back to trial armed and ready.  Not only does it have the 28 Evidentiary Objections, but it has the litanies (list of questions) for authenticating just about anything you want to put into evidence.  Impeachment and refreshing recollection are in there, too.
