Model witness examinations
297 pages. Updated by new edition.
Since the first edition of this volume, the goal was to present "the mechanics of conducting certain types of examinations of witnesses, correlating those examinations with the Rules of Evidence and relevant case law". The models provide a checklist of the facts that need to be established in order to fulfill requirements of the evidentiary rules. Each model begins with a brief explanation of the situation. The Q&A exchange follows and then the commentary explaining what rule required the asking of the question. The authors caution that the questions must be tailored a bit for each unique occasion, but following these models will assure you get the evidence you need.
