Description


As of January 1, 2011, by order of the Illinois Supreme Court, the Illinois Rules of Evidence govern proceedings in the courts of Illinois, except as otherwise provided in Ill.R.Evid. 1101.

Graham's Handbook of Illinois Evidence is written by Mike Graham, the principal drafter of the rules themselves and Special Advisor to the Illinois Supreme Court Committee on Rules of Evidence. With this unique resource, you get easy access to the rules as they stand, along with reliable commentary and exclusive insights.

Graham's Handbook of Illinois Evidence provides the rules themselves, but it goes well beyond that, delivering concise, expert commentary covering:

  • Insights into how the rules interrelate
  • The principals that underlie the rules
  • The case law that supports the principals

By implementing the Illinois Rules of Evidence, the Illinois Supreme Court effectively added, amended, and repealed a number of previously existing standards. Grahams's Handbook of Illinois Evidence covers all the changes, including those affecting:

  • Compromise and Offers to Compromise
  • Examining Witness Concerning Prior Statement
  • Statements Which Are Not Hearsay
  • Statement by a Party's Agent or Servant
  • Family Records
  • Statement Against Interest
  • Attacking and Supporting Credibility of Declarant.
  • Methods of Proving Character
  • Evidence of Character Witness
  • Hearsay Exceptions
  • And more

This completely revised and updated 2020 Edition, authored by the man who is arguably the foremost expert on the topic, clearly and concisely covers all the changes and gives you instant access to the rules as they stand, along with reliable commentary and exclusive insights.
