Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! In this episode from our "Listen and Learn" series, we cover a category of evidence called "non-hearsay," which is tested often both on Evidence essays and on the MBE.

In this episode we discuss:

  • A quick review of what is considered hearsay
  • Categories of statements deemed non-hearsay
  • When to consider hearsay exceptions
  • Analyzing two Evidence essay hypos, from the July 2005 and July 2007 California bar exams
  • How to structure your essay answer when the question is about hearsay
