Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, in our “Listen and Learn” series, we take a look at the Confrontation Clause. Confrontation Clause issues are commonly tested in Evidence questions in both law school exams and bar exams, almost always alongside hearsay issues.
In this episode we discuss:
- Reviewing the rules of the Confrontation Clause
- The relationship between Confrontation Clause and Hearsay questions
- How to determine whether a statement made to the police is testimonial in nature, or the Primary Purpose Test
- Analyzing two hypos from previous California bar exams
Thanks for listening!
