Evidentiary Foundations has sold more than 125,000 copies in its publication life. This popular resource covers all major evidentiary doctrines, providing for each doctrine:
* 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
Evidentiary Foundations features an analysis of statutory developments, notably the 2003 amendment to Federal Rule 608 and the proposed amendment to Rule 408. It also discusses significant new cases, and reviews relevant new technical developments, such as the ascendance of short tandem repeat(STR) DNA analysis. There is a new foundation for STR testimony.
