Recorded Seminar: Peter Sankoff, Going Deep on the Residual Exception to the Hearsay Rule


Recorded: 13 August 2021, 83 minutes

In a 2020 seminar, Professor Sankoff addressed the exceptions to the hearsay rule in one fell swoop. That was a mistake! The residual or principled exception to the rule is, by far, the most complex part of the rule and includes a host of peculiarities that guide its application. In this one hour seminar, Professor Sankoff navigates all the pitfalls that can arise here, and delves deeply into what makes a piece of hearsay “reliable” and “necessary”.
