Evidence



 



Welcome to Lawshelf’s video-course on Evidence. This course looks at the tapestry of rules that govern what information can be presented during criminal and civil proceedings. The course focuses primarily on the Federal Rules of Evidence. While state rules of evidence may vary, these represent a good indication of how the rules of evidence are generally likely to operate throughout the country.

This is an introductory-level course and the concepts are discussed in a manner that should be accessible even to those with no legal or litigation background.


Module 1 introduces the concept of evidence and discusses when and how evidentiary issues are decided. It looks at objections, stipulations, judicial notice, appeals and standards of review that comprise the backdrop of the way in which evidentiary rules are applied.
