Uniform Rules of Evidence

Primary tabs

This locator links to state evidence codes that correspond to the Uniform Rules of Evidence. These rules were revised in 1999. The earlier 1974 version, with amendments, is still the basis of the rules in a number of states.

Since the Federal Rules of Evidence ("FRE") are quite similar to the Uniform Rules of Evidence it also links to them. To see a particular article of the FRE (as it corresponds to the Uniform Rules) click below.
