The Federal Rules of Evidence (eff. Dec. 1, 2017) govern the admission or exclusion of evidence in most proceedings in the United States courts. The Supreme Court submitted proposed Federal Rules of Evidence to Congress on February 5, 1973, but Congress exercised its power under the Rules Enabling Act to suspend their implementation. The Federal Rules of Evidence became federal law on January 2, 1975, when President Ford signed the Act to Establish Rules of Evidence for Certain Courts and Proceedings, Pub. L. No. 93-595. As enacted, the Evidence Rules included amendments by Congress to the rules originally proposed by the Supreme Court. The most recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence were adopted in 2017. In addition, we have included the following: 1. Amendments to the Federal Rules of Practice and Procedure: Evidence (2017) -Self-Authenticating Electronic Evidence (Video Transcript) 2. Advisory Committee Notes to the Federal Rules of Evidence That May Require Clarification Why buy a book you can download for free? We print this book so you don't have to. First you gotta find a good clean (legible) copy and make sure it's the latest version (not always easy). Some documents found on the web are missing some pages or the image quality is so poor, they are difficult to read. We look over each document carefully and replace poor quality images by going back to the original source document. We proof each document to make sure it's all there - including all changes. If you find a good copy, you could print it using a network printer you share with 100 other people (typically its either out of paper or toner). If it's just a 10-page document, no problem, but if it's 250-pages, you will need to punch 3 holes in all those pages and put it in a 3-ring binder. Takes at least an hour.

Michigan Evidence Courtroom Manual's purpose is to provide fast, concise, and authoritative answers to most of the evidentiary questions which arise in the course of trials and hearings, as well as in trial preparation. It accomplishes this through a unique combination of trial-tested features, including: • Rules: The complete rules are collected at the beginning of the book. Individual rules are also at the beginning of the chapter in which the rule is discussed. • Commentary: Perhaps the most important part of this book, the author's Commentary provides a quick overview of the rule under discussion, guidance in interpreting the rule, and helpful pointers for applying the rule in actual practice. In many chapters the Commentary contains special features such as Illustrations, Constitutional Considerations, and Current Trends. • Authority: Following each chapter's Commentary, additional authorities are cited. These give the user a starting point for additional research. • Comparison to Federal Rule: A brief comparison of the Michigan and federal rules in each chapter provides additional insight. • Cases: Recent significant cases are summarized at the end of each chapter. These provide support for argument and decisions required during the course of proceedings.
