Course Outline: This course aims to provide you with a working knowledge of both the Federal and Texas Rules of Evidence. Texas, like most states, has adopted a set of evidence rules based on the federal rules, so we will discuss the Texas rules only insofar as they significantly differ from the federal rules.
The rules of evidence govern the introduction of all types of evidence, including testimonial, tangible, documentary, photographic demonstrative, and scientific. To fully comprehend these rules it is essential to study them in the context of litigation. We will therefore study the application of the rules through a series of problems interspersed throughout the course.

Course Notes: HyFlex  The instructor for this course has expressed a preference to teach in a physical classroom. The extent to which that room will be used during the semester is up to the instructor and may vary during the semester. When the classroom is used by an instructor, those class sessions will be operated in “HyFlex” mode: remote presence is available to any student via internet videoconferencing, and recordings will be available. More details should be made available from the instructor via their syllabus or via other means as the start of the semester nears.
