The Evidence Primer: A Practical Refresher for Lawyers

January 14, 2022

Designed as a complement to Justice John Few’s excellent program on Advanced Evidence, this seminar is geared to be a refresher course on the highly technical, sometimes counterintuitive, and— at times—difficult, provisions of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Most lawyers master these rules while in law school, successfully pass the bar, and then, in an era of dwindling trials, find themselves becoming “rusty” on the application of the Rules as they advance throughout their careers. The program is designed to review, organize, and reinforce basic evidence law so that participants can apply it with confidence in their next trial. A fresh look at classic evidence law is sure to aid any attorney in

preparation for the few, but nevertheless important cases that go to trial. Moderated by Senior United States District Judge Joseph F. Anderson, Jr., the program features an impressive lineup of attorneys from across South Carolina who will discuss and illustrate the rules that are perhaps the most overlooked part of a common law trial.

 This seminar is an basic to intermediate level program.
