Illinois Criminal Trial Evidence is intended to assist the work of trial and appellate lawyers and judges. Illinois rules of evidence find their origins in various sources: English common law, American common law, constitutional law, Illinois statutory law, and Illinois Supreme Court rules. Illinois courts begin to selectively adopt some of the federal rules of evidence. Because Illinois is not yet an evidence code jurisdiction, it becomes more and more difficult for lawyers and judges to become thoroughly familiar with the state's rules of evidence. This book identifies those rules of evidence that are applicable to a criminal trial, explains the rules, and offers constructive criticism whenever necessary. This text also provides a table of cases used as reference on the topics discussed for each chapter. This text serves as a law school textbook or as a supplement to other law school trial and evidence publications.
