Abstract

Several years ago I began to ruminate about the state of evidence scholarship. I had noticed that it seemed that very few evidence law review articles were being published. Clatter on the evidence professor internet site was extremely infrequent, appearing to come to life solely in reponse to major Supreme Court decisions. It seemed like the players in the field of doctrinal practical evidence scholarship were and still are the same individuals active during my early years of law teaching in the mid 1970's and 1980's. Was what I sensed true? If so, why? Finally, if true, is it really all a big so what?
