Evidence, Prof. Keith Findley:  Our textbook will be Allen, Kuhns, Swift, Schwartz & Pardo, Evidence:  Text, Problems, and Cases (Wolters Kluwer 5th ed. 2011).  Additionally, we will be using a clicker system, which means you will need to get set up with the clicker before our first class.  You have two options.  You can either purchase a hand unit from iClicker, or you can purchase and download a subscription to the software that will enable you to use your computer or smart phone.  Purchasing a subscription and using your smart phone or computer is cheaper than purchasing a separate hand-held unit, so I assume that is what most, if not all, of you will want to do.  Instructions for either option are in this iClicker Student guide
