Evidence 10: Authentication and Original Writing

Evidence #8: Lay and Expert Witnesses

Evidence #2: Admissibility

Steve has sent me a good-sized round of podcasts on Evidence — I’m currently working on getting them setup for publishing, but we hope to have them all out in time for midterms.

In Episode #2 of Evidence, Steve covers Federal Rules of Evidence 407-411 which touch on exclusions of evidence that, despite being relevant, isn’t admissible.

Rule 407. Subsequent Remedial Measures

Rule 408. Compromise and Offers to Compromise

Rule 409. Payment of Medical and Similar Expenses

Rule 410. Inadmissibility of Pleas, Plea Discussions, and Related Statements

Rule 411. Liability Insurance

Evidence #1: Relevence

I’d like to start off by welcoming Steve Wasick to the Life of a Law Student team!

Steve is a 2L at Northwestern University who has taken the time out of his studies to create a new series for us based on his Evidence class.  Thank you, Steve and we appreciate your hard work!

In this, the inaugural episode of Evidence, Steve covers Evidence, covering the following:

Rule 401: Definition of “Relevant Evidence.”

Rule 402: Admissibility based on relevance.

Rule 104(b): Conditional relevance.
