The Trial Evidence Committee monitors developments in the law of evidence. With more than 2,000 members, the committee offers an excellent opportunity to network with other litigators and to remain current on evidentiary issues. The committee produces a quarterly newsletter, which typically includes articles on various evidence issues, surveys of national and regional developments in the law of evidence and updates on significant state and federal evidence cases. Throughout the year, the committee also sponsors and co-sponsors programs at national and regional ABA meetings. Members review a wide variety of evidentiary issues and may work on various subcommittees and publications addressing issues such as expert witnesses, highly technical evidence, electronic evidence, legislation, ethics, privileges, and others raised under the Federal Rules of Evidence and their state counterparts.
If you are a trial attorney, especially a new or young trial attorney, the Trial Evidence Committee can offer tremendous benefits to you. The committee addresses fundamental as well as cutting-edge evidentiary issues that affect each of us in our practice, and it offers valuable tools for us as trial attorneys. Membership in the Trial Evidence Committee is free with your membership in the Section of Litigation.
