[Recording] Evaluating the Admissibility of Evidence
Presented by: Erik Locascio; Moderated by Nicolas Hughes
The most important aspects of challenging evidence are anticipating the introduction of the evidence and planning the objections before trial or a contested hearing. This CLE will focus on the most common grounds for excluding evidence at trial, evaluating evidence for admissibility (“evidence blocking”), preparing for challenges to the admissibility of evidence you wish to enter at trial, constitutionalizing objections, successfully preserving the record for appeal, and mistakes to avoid. This CLE aims to provide lawyers, particularly new lawyers, a methodology to better anticipate and prepare for evidentiary challenges in contested matters.
