Hearsay Exception


“Objection! It’s hearsay!” This objection gives lawyers and judges many frustrations. So how can a lawyer understand the hearsay rule in order to apply it properly in the courtroom? Sit down with Regent University School of Law professor James Duane, who goes through the hearsay rule and provides examples of what is a passable exception and what is not passable. From the Professional Development Conference, September 19, 2014, in Virginia Beach.



James Duane, Esq. Regent University School of Law, Virginia Beach, VA
