Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, as part of our "Listen and Learn" series, we're discussing the rules around authentication of evidence, which comes into play when you're dealing with physical or documentary evidence.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Physical vs. testimonial evidence
  • How the different types of physical/documentary evidence are authenticated
  • Items that are considered self-authenticating
  • Analyzing four hypos from previous California bar exams
