The course teaches the “Howeth Method” of understanding evidence. The late Jerry Howeth was an Austin attorney and longtime faculty of this program, who was recognized as an expert in Texas evidentiary law. Participants will learn how to apply the rules of evidence in very practical situations and will be exposed to Jerry's unique method of understanding the Texas Rules of Evidence. The program will consist of lectures and break-out sessions where attendees will apply the rules of evidence.
This course is funded by a grant from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
