Edited by Honorable Fred Karasov & Honorable Diane B. Bratvold

Now in its second edition, the Minnesota Courtroom Evidence Deskbook goes beyond the evidence rules to provide thorough explanation and examination of the evidentiary concepts that guide court cases.

Offering all the advantages of a traditional evidence manual – the full text of the Minnesota Rules of Evidence and committee comments is paired with the authors’ expert analyses – this book takes you further by offering chapter-length examinations of important evidentiary topics involving several rules simultaneously or carrying unique significance in Minnesota, including social media evidence, circumstantial evidence, and the associated standards of review, and the different inquiries used to admit expert testimony in federal and Minnesota state courts.
