So we can kind of think of this as a
“Law & Order” episode. So, let’s talk about “Law & Order” episode — one that I’ve
actually written, they haven’t picked up yet — and then we’ll talk about how that pertains
to Criminal Procedure, how you might get something on a test dealing with little
nuances to our “Law & Order” episode. Let’s say I ask the witness, “Hey, you took
a bribe for your testimony here today didn’t you?” And the witness says, “No, I
didn’t?” Can I prove that the witness really did take a bribe with other
evidence, with what we call extrinsic evidence? A document or the testimony of
a different witness. That’s the first question that I want you to think about with
respect to each impeachment method. So what do I mean by you have to be able to
comprehend. Well, you can’t be operating under some type of mental impairment,
mentally handicapped or affected by a substance like drugs or alcohol. And now
when I say affected by drugs or alcohol, look, I know plenty of people who were
drunk at their wedding … that doesn’t mean that they are not validly married. I’m
talking about to the point at which you can’t consent. That you actually don’t
remember entering into that marriage. That could invalidate a marriage. If you were ever to have an exam
question, it’s about freedom of speech, and you didn’t know what other rule to
apply, use this one. If there’s anything that you need to know as a framework for free
speech analysis, it is the distinctions the Supreme Court has drawn in
content-based and content-neutral laws. It’s not only important to learn the law but it
is important to think about the skill of writing exams, and that is what it is.
It’s just a skill that you need to practice. And with more practice, you get
better at it. So you need to think throughout this lecture not only what
the professor has been teaching you in family law but what to expect on the
exam from that professor.
