Abstract:

Presenting or opposing evidence is at the heart of all trial work. While there can be no substitute for an attorneys familiarity with the Military Rules of Evidence, a compilation of sample foundational questions can aid the new trial lawyer in the presentation of his or her case. To that end, this publication has been prepared. It is hoped that it will simplify the task of the new Navy-Marine Corps trial attorney by giving concrete examples of predicate questions and other trial evolutions which may be adapted for use in typical court-martial cases. Contents General Provisions Judicial Notice Exclusionary Rule and Related Matters Privileges Witnesses Opinion and Expert Testimony Hearsay Authentication and Identification and Contents of Writings, Recordings, and Photographs. Keywords Military law, Naval personnel, Marine Corps personnel, Law enforcement.
