The Busy Lawyer’s Guide to Hearsay (Part I) [Engage & Exchange Series]

The Busy Lawyer’s Guide to Hearsay Part I presented by Rene Valladares



Rene Valladares, Federal Public Defender, District of Nevada and author of A Defender’s Guide to Federal Evidence, presents this evidence series designed for the busy practitioner.

This first of two sessions provides a roadmap for criminal defense lawyers to navigate through hearsay problems. Mr. Valladares discusses what constitutes hearsay (FREs 801 and 802), the major hearsay exclusions (FRE 801(d)) and exceptions (FREs 803 and 804), and what constitutes unavailability under FRE 804. The intersection of the hearsay rules and the Confrontation Clause is also discussed.
