Perhaps the most fundamental issue for the introduction of evidence at a hearing or trial is properly laying an evidentiary foundation. Substantive evidence is not admitted unless a foundation is first laid. Foundation includes showing the witness has the necessary knowledge to testify about an event or matter, whether the witness is a fact witness or an expert, and that physical evidence is what a party purports it to be. Notwithstanding the fact that every trial lawyer should know how to lay a foundation, the reported cases show that trial lawyers are unable to introduce necessary evidence to establish a claim. This presentation will assist the younger attorney in understanding foundation and the use of the rules for getting evidence admitted. More advanced attorneys will also benefit from review of the rules and pertinent caselaw.

Internet based technologies, such as email, document management software, teleconferencing, and ediscovery, for all their upsides, are in fact making it harder to do diligent lawyering. This course analyzes how technology has changed the way lawyers work and even think, and how some basic rules of evidence can no longer be followed. Due to professional pressures we are forced into technologies we don’t need and forced to practice in sloppy ways where mistakes are more likely. We are increasingly surrounded by “dark matter”, case file materials or relevant evidence which cannot be accessed and which we may not even know exists. Strange as it might seem much of our time now is waiting for software to execute, time which we cannot devote to other matters. The presentation ends with simple suggestions on how to get the digital beast under control.
