Official Print Edition of the Supreme Judicial Court Advisory Committee on Massachusetts Evidence Law
The Flaschner Judicial Institute has once again worked with the Supreme Judicial Court Advisory Committee on Massachusetts Evidence Law to produce the Official Print Edition of the Massachusetts Guide to Evidence, 2022 Edition. It is the only print edition with the exact same pagination, index and table of authorities as the version all Massachusetts state judges receive from the Flaschner Judicial Institute.
The Guide assembles existing Massachusetts evidence law in an easy-to-use document organized similarly to the Federal Rules of Evidence, with extensive explanatory notes and citations. Everything in the Guide has been approved by the SJC as a valid statement of Massachusetts evidence law.
The 2022 edition includes substantial revisions to many sections including Section 410 (Pleas, Offers of Pleas, and Related Statements), Section 502 (Work-Product Doctrine), (substantial revision), Section 529 (Pre-trial diversion and restorative justice programs (entirely new section), Section 702/703 (Expert Testimony; substantial revision), Section 801(d)(2)(B) (Statements by party-opponent), and Section 1113(b)(4) (Motion for Mistrial at Closing Argument). The extensive Notes accompanying each section of the Guide in which the leading appellate decisions are explained is what makes the book an essential reference work for lawyers.
