Applying the Rules of Evidence: What Every Attorney Needs to Know

Rob Foster discussed “Hearsay Objections and Exceptions,” which will address formal exceptions to hearsay, FRE 801(d) Exceptions, anticipating and minimizing hearsay objections and recent case law. Jason Garber addressed two topics; “Expert Reports and Scientific Evidence” and “Ethics.”

The former will cover assessing the potential weight of scientific evidence, qualifying experts and verifying methodologies/theories and looking out for red flags and errors, while the latter will address facilitating efficiency, reliability and overall fairness of the adversary process, complying with time constraints, keeping the client informed and what to do when your client is dishonest.
