The 2nd Edition has been reorganized to reflect feedback from users and provides a comprehensive treatment of the former rules while highlighting the new language of the restyling project. The FREs are presented in a clear and concise format that is accessible and engaging to students. The casebook features a novel visual display and layout that uses text boxes, diagrams, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, references to scholarly debates, useful information for students, and questions to provoke thought. Additional logic maps have been added providing a visual overview of challenging concepts. The chapter on the confrontation clause has been completely rewritten to reflect recent changes in the law and to provide clear treatment of the concept. A major distinguishing feature of the book is the accompanying electronic version with extensive hyperlinking to Westlaw® versions of legal materials, Black’s Law Dictionary® definitions, supplementary online resources, and more.
