Summary:The New Wigmore: A Treatise on Evidence is an authoritative guide with answers to evolving questions in civil and criminal litigation. The series presents the same quality of research, thought, and analysis as the original Wigmore, creating a genuine present-day counterpart to the seminal evidence treatise. Evidentiary Privileges, by Edward J. Imwinkelried, offers unique analysis of recent evidentiary problems including application of the attorney-client privilege to government agencies and corporate entities, and the difficulty of determining exactly who holds the privilege. In these two volumes, you'll find also a practical framework for evaluating the existence or scope of new privileges. Expert Evidence, by David H. Kaye, David E. Bernstein and Jennifer L. Mnookin, describes and analyzes all major facets of the law of evidence pertaining to expert evidence. Selected Rules of Limited Admissibility, by David P. Leonard, provides a sophisticated framework for lawyers and judges to understand and apply the rules that exclude evidence for policy reasons. Evidence of Other Misconduct and Similar Events, by David P. Leonard, is a comprehensive, scholarly analysis of when evidence of crimes, wrongs, or acts other than those at issue in a trial may be admitted into evidence. Impeachment and Rehabilitation, by Roger Park and Tom Lininger, is a comprehensive review of all the rules governing impeachment and rehabilitation of witnesses.
