Students studying evidence in California learn the Federal Rules of Evidence (FRE) and the California Evidence Code (CEC). Most California evidence professors test on both sets of rules. In particular, professors test the differences between the FRE and the CEC. Upon graduation, the essay and performance portions of the California State Bar Exam test the FRE and the CEC. As in school, the bar often emphasizes differences between the two sets of evidence rules. This book highlights the similarities and differences between the FRE and the CEC. The book covers the evidence rules you encounter in law school and on the bar. The book is unique in the amount of attention focused on preparing students for evidence questions in law school and on the bar. In addition to clearly written, concise text describing the many aspects of evidence law, the book contains numerous practice exams, including law school exams, California bar exam questions, analysis of exam questions, model answers, and multiple choice questions (and answers). The book has two goals: First, equip students to excel in the law school course on evidence (and the trial advocacy course), and Second, prepare students for the California Bar Exam.

"[This book] features several major California Supreme Court cases that deal with the following issues: the characterization of property placed in one spouse’s name, the characterization of enhanced pension benefits, the definition of 'living separate and apart,' and the status of a putative spouse. More extensive interpretation of the 2002 Amendments to the Premarital Agreement Act considers the 7-day requirement when represented by independent counsel and the retroactivity of the spousal support waiver provisions. Additional material on the fiduciary duty spouses owe to each other regarding community property covers the extent of the duty to disclose financial transactions to the other spouse."-- Provided by publisher.
