Information

Why Attend?

You took Evidence in law school, but that was ages ago—even if you just graduated. Why not refresh your knowledge?

  • Explore the major classes of evidentiary issues in civil and criminal trials
  • Understand those rules most commonly encountered—and those most commonly gotten wrong—at trial, and how best to deploy them
  • Receive our most popular publication, the fully annotated A Guide to the Rules of Evidence in Virginia (upcoming 2018–2019 edition)

Featuring nationally known evidence expert Professor Stephen A. Saltzburg.

Simply put, if you don’t know the rules of evidence, you will not be successful in assessing the value of cases, in pretrial negotiations, or in court. Knowing the rules, using them to your advantage, and resisting the opposition’s improper use of the rules are skills you must constantly burnish. Spend just two hours with us, and reconnect with the Essentials of Evidence again.

You’ll be learning from the expert: Professor Stephen A. Saltzburg, nationally known teacher, author, and advocate. His discussion will focus on the Federal Rules of Evidence, but will also include discussion of the Virginia Rules where they differ, and to that latter end the written materials will be Virginia CLE’s most popular publication, the fully annotated A Guide to the Rules of Evidence in Virginia (upcoming 2018–2019 edition)—a $60 value—in electronic form.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Prof. Stephen A. Saltzburg, George Washington University / Washington, DC

Stephen A. Saltzburg joined GW Law in 1990. Before that, he taught at the University of Virginia School of Law, and was named the first incumbent of the Class of 1962 Endowed Chair. In 1996, he founded and directed the master’s program in Litigation and Dispute Resolution at GW. He was named University Professor, the highest title a university can confer upon a faculty member, in 2004. The Chief Justice of the United States appointed him as reporter for, and then as a member of, the Advisory Committee on the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and as a member of the Advisory Committee on the Federal Rules of Evidence. He was the reporter for the Civil Justice Reform Act Committee for the D.C. District Court before he became chair. He has served as a special master in two class action cases in the D.C. District Court, and continues to serve as a mediator for the U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C. He has mediated a variety of disputes involving public agencies and private litigants; served as a sole arbitrator, panel chair, and panel member in domestic arbitrations; and served as an arbitrator for the International Chamber of Commerce. Professor Saltzburg held the following governmental positions: associate independent counsel in the Iran-Contra investigation; deputy assistant attorney general in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, the Attorney General’s ex-officio representative on the U.S. Sentencing Commission; and director of the U.S. Treasury Department Tax Refund Fraud Task Force. He was chair of the ABA Criminal Justice Section from 2007 to 2008, and represents the section in the ABA House of Delegates. He was appointed to the ABA Task Force on Terrorism and the Law and to the ABA Task Force on Gatekeeper Regulation and the Profession in 2001, and to the ABA President’s Advisory Group on Citizen Detention and Enemy Combatant Issues in 2002. In 2001 he was appointed by Chief Judge Edward R. Becker of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit as co-chair of the Task Force on the Selection of Lead Counsel in Class Actions, which published its final report in 2002. Professor Saltzburg is the author of numerous books and articles on evidence, procedure, and litigation, including the authoritative Federal Rules of Evidence Manual, now in its eleventh edition.
