Students studying evidence in California learn the Federal Rules of Evidence (FRE) and the California Evidence Code (CEC). Most California evidence professors test on both sets of rules. In particular, professors test the differences between the FRE and the CEC. Upon graduation, the essay and performance portions of the California State Bar Exam test the FRE and the CEC. As in school, the bar often emphasizes differences between the two sets of evidence rules. This book highlights the similarities and differences between the FRE and the CEC. The book covers the evidence rules you encounter in law school and on the bar. The book is unique in the amount of attention focused on preparing students for evidence questions in law school and on the bar. In addition to clearly written, concise text describing the many aspects of evidence law, the book contains numerous practice exams, including law school exams, California bar exam questions, analysis of exam questions, model answers, and multiple choice questions (and answers). The book has two goals: First, equip students to excel in the law school course on evidence (and the trial advocacy course), and Second, prepare students for the California Bar Exam.

This concise and comprehensive Understanding treatise is designed to complement any products liability casebook. Part I consists of an overview of the complex body of products liability caselaw and statutes that has developed over the past century. The chapters follow a functional approach and begin with the four theories that are the foundation of all products liability cases: warranty, misrepresentation, negligence, and strict liability. Separate chapters in Part I then examine the principle types of product defects (design, manufacturing, and failure to warn) and some of the problems involved with proving that the product was defective and that the defect was the cause of the injury. Finally chapters focus on the various defenses available in a products liability action and the types of damages that a plaintiff may seek. An understanding of products liability law also requires an examination of the issues involved in the prosecution or defense of a products liability case. Part II addresses a range of those issues, including researching the case; drafting the complaint; interrogatories and requests to admit facts; requests for the production of documents; discovery and evidence depositions; protective orders; and discovery enforcement.
