Professor Charles R. Nesson 3 classroom credits LAW-36000A Winter
We study the process and law of proof in American jury trial. Within that frame, we explore the nature of truth, perception, memory, credibility, clarity, relevance, prejudice, hearsay, confrontation and privilege. Our approach is conceptual and rhetorical, with focus on the principles from which the rules of evidence arise rather than upon the rules themselves.
