Earlier this month, Professor Liesa Richter gave remarks on two panels at a Symposium on the Future of Hearsay at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. The event was sponsored by the Advisory Committee for the Federal Rules of Evidence.
The Symposium included federal judges, litigators and law professors who specialize in the evidence area. Also presenting was Judge Richard Posner of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
Professor Richter spoke about alternatives to expanding the residual exception to the hearsay rule and about prior consistent statements after a 2014 amendment on testifying witnesses.
“It is admirable that the Advisory Committee is encouraging dialogue to keep the Federal Rules of Evidence fresh,” said Professor Richter. “It was a pleasure to be a part of the conversation.”
Professor Richter is the William J. Alley Professor of Law. Her research centers on federal evidentiary policy and rule-making. Her scholarship has been published in the Fordham, Wake Forest and American University Law Reviews. Her article “Posnerian Hearsay: Slaying the Discretion Dragon” is forthcoming in Nov. 2015 in the Florida Law Review.
