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.

The California Constitution is one of the longest in the world and has been revised over 500 times since its original drafting in 1849. In its current incarnation, the constitution reflects the state's mistrust of elected officials, gives cities and towns broad home rule powers, and outlines governance for the state's university system. The California State Constitution provides an outstanding constitutional and historical account of the state's basic governing charter. In addition to an overview of California's constitutional history, it offers an in-depth, section-by-section analysis of the entire constitution, detailing the many significant changes that have been made since its initial drafting in 1849. This treatment, along with a table of cases, index, and the bibliography provides an unsurpassed reference guide for students, scholars, and practitioners of California's constitution. The second edition updates and expands the previous edition published in 1993. The book provides new analysis, with citations to court decisions and relevant scholarly commentary, as well as accompanying explanations and a lengthy introduction to provide historical and thematic context. This new edition also contains a foreword by the current Chief Justice of California, Tani Cantil-Sakauye. The Oxford Commentaries on the State Constitutions of the United States is an important series that reflects a renewed international interest in constitutional history and provides expert insight into each of the 50 state constitutions. Each volume in this innovative series contains a historical overview of the state's constitutional development, a section-by-section analysis of its current constitution, and a comprehensive guide to further research. Under the expert editorship of Professor G. Alan Tarr, Director of the Center on State Constitutional Studies at Rutgers University, this series provides essential reference tools for understanding state constitutional law. Books in the series can be purchased individually or as part of a complete set, giving readers unmatched access to these important political documents.
