This textbook illustrates how to apply New York Evidence law teaching the reader how to lay out the foundations for the introduction of items of evidence. This book adds to the abstract evidentiary doctrines that many law students study. It is designed to teach the reader both the doctrines of evidence as well as how to present the evidentiary foundations necessary for trying a case.
This edition is the first edition where Professor Randolph N. Jonakait was asked to revise the text to make it more useful to New Yorkers. New York attorneys especially need tailored evidence materials because New York evidence law is not based on the Federal Rules of Evidence. Lawyers with educations from outside New York are often unaware of the differences.
This book proved to be greatly successful and Jonakait has gone on to write further editions.
