Description

This statutory supplement incorporates the latest changes to the Federal Rules of Evidence as well as proposed revisions likely to take effect in 2023 or 2024.

Among these recent changes is a 2020 amendment to Rule 404’s notice requirement. Also included are proposed amendments to Rules 106, 615, and 702, revised after public comments and likely to become law on December 1, 2023. Five other proposed amendments—to Rules 611, 613(b), 801(d)(2), 804(b)(3), and 1006—have been released for public comment and are on course to become law on December 1, 2024. The most significant of these proposals would add a new subdivision, Rule 611(d), governing courtroom use of illustrative aids. All these proposed changes appear together with accompanying Advisory Committee’s Notes, selected public comments, and explanatory editor’s notes.

The supplement also includes a side-by-side reprinting of the older (pre-2011), unrestyled Federal Rules of Evidence and the newly restyled rules to allow for ready comparison. Editor’s notes point out those areas where the restyling project, contrary to its authors’ claimed intentions, worked substantive changes to the rules.

Throughout the supplement, instructors and students who use Fisher’s Evidence (4th ed. 2022) will benefit from paginated cross-references between the casebook and the supplement.
