PLI Press is excited to announce its new quarterly journal, The Current: The Journal of PLI Press. Each issue of The Current will feature ten to twelve original articles, authored by leading experts including PLI authors and faculty members, and providing timely commentary and analysis of one or more key legal developments.
As the pace of change in the law – and the practice of law itself – continues to accelerate, so does the need for more current expert commentary and analysis. The Current intends to fill this need, providing practicing lawyers, academics, and members of the judiciary with insightful commentary and analysis of changes impacting the law and the legal profession.
Current topics include: Estate Planning in the Trump Era · The Impact of the “Buy/Hire American” Executive Order on H-1B Visa Practice · Results Removed: Fighting Deindexing Abuse · The U.S. Trademark Audit Program.
The Current is available through your PLI PLUS subscription:

PLI’s Essential Trial Evidence: Brought to Life by Famous Trials, Films, and Fiction (2nd Edition) is a unique and insightful guide to the law of evidence. Author Martin A. Schwartz enlivens an intricate, technical subject by using engaging, evidentiary examples from popular culture to provide a strong understanding of the Federal Rules of Evidence and its interpretive case law, which represents the prevailing evidence law in the United States.
This unique instructive approach also provides an understanding of how popular culture sources inform jurors’ preconceptions about the trial process. Illustrations from famous cases, movies, novels, cartoons, and other media highlight the presumptions jurors bring to the courtroom.
Essential Trial Evidence: Brought to Life by Famous Trials, Films, and Fiction (2nd Edition) covers a wide range of issues, including relevance and unfair prejudice, the rule against hearsay and its numerous exceptions, recent developments in expert testimony, and the various impeachment methods.
You’ll receive clear guidance on the following:
– Differences between expert witness and lay witness testimony, including how courts handle the dual fact-expert witness
– Procedures for juror questioning of witnesses
– Admissibility of videotape evidence
– Recent developments under the Confrontation Clause
– Requirements for introducing electronic evidence,
– And more!
