Judge Calabresi has pointed out that this is the Age of Statutes, and some commentators have asserted that trial by jury is becoming trial by expert. Therefore, competent attorneys must be adept at working with scientific material and at interpreting statutes. The Seventh Edition of this casebook again enables students to learn how to use materials generated by scientific researchers and to develop statutory interpretation skills. The authors emphasize scientific problems, with repeated references to Daubert and its progeny. Evidentiary doctrine coverage is reduced, to allow for deeper treatment of the science behind much of the evidence presented in modern trials. This Seventh Edition, even more so than previous editions, uses scientific research to critique the underlying assumptions of Evidence Law. Throughout the text, the Seventh Edition stresses statutory construction skills, and at appropriate points it discusses the contrast between the textualist and legal process schools of legisprudence.

A Teacher's Manual is available to professors.

This book also is available in a three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
