We consider legal truth from jury view: proof by live witness, proof by expert, and the relationship of truth to evidence, time and viewpoint.

Expect periodic short assignments in writing, peer appreciation and critique. We will discourse in both true-name zoom-space and pseudonymous threads-space. Students will write a final paper (1500 words) due at the end of the exam period.

This is NOT a course on the Federal Rules of Evidence.

Subject Areas: Procedure & Practice, Legal & Political Theory
