NITA Studio 7 is sponsoring a free live webcast on Character-Evidence Rules (404-406 and 608-609) on October 26 (10:00 a.m. PDT & 1:00 p.m. EDT). You can go here to register. The presenters are Thomas Leach, Program Director at Pacific George School of Law and Assistant Professor Henry Brown. You can view them do a teaser for a program on direct and cross here. If you teach evidence or trial advocacy, you may wish to recommend it to your law students.
The NITA blurb for the program on Character Evidence states: “The character-evidence rules (FRE 404-406, 608-609, and state equivalents) are definitely the most confusing and trouble-causing of all the rules. Compared to them, hearsay is easy! Jay Leach and Henry Brown will walk you through the rules, the usage, and the underlying theory. You will emerge with a calm, cool, collected mastery of the subject.”
