The Federal Rules of Evidence provide the guidelines about what information can be presented during a hearing or trial. Review the Federal Rules of Evidence and explain how courts determine what types of information can be used and what the lawyers must do to get evidence admitted? Using LexisAdvance or Fastcase, compare the Federal Rules of Evidence to the Rules of Evidence in your state. Use http://guides.rasmussen.edu/justicestudies/paralegal for directions on using the Rasmussen Paralegal Program’s research services. Is there a difference between the two in terms of the types of information that are considered “evidence,” or the steps a lawyer must take for evidence to be admitted? Be sure to address real or physical evidence, documentary evidence, testimonial evidence and judicial notice.
