Evidentiary Foundations

Edward Imwinkelried’s Evidentiary Foundations has sold more than 125,000 copies in its publication life. This time-tested evidence treatise covers all the major evidentiary doctrines, and includes analysis of statutory developments along with discussions of the presentation of hard copy exhibits in court using document cameras and the presentation of digital exhibits using monitors or projection screens. Detailed explanations of evidence principles include:

• A brief description of the pertinent Federal Rules of Evidence and the most recent leading cases construing the Rules 
• A list of foundational elements—the events and facts you need to lay a complete foundation 
• An illustrative foundation showing how each question relates to a particular element of the foundation 

The Tenth Edition includes coverage of new topics such as:

• Rule 902(13), effective December 1, 2017, providing for the self-authentication of records automatically generated by an electronic process
• Rule 902(14), also effective December 1, 2017, providing for the self-authentication of data copied from an electronic device, storage medium or file
• The use of virtual reality technology to convey information to the trier of fact
• The significance of Ohio v. Clark, 135 S. Ct. 2173, 192 L. Ed. 2d 306 (2015), addressing the question of whether a child’s out-of-court statements to a teacher who is concerned about potential child abuse are “testimonial” under the Sixth Amendment Confrontation Clause
