Evidence Syllabus

This (evolving) syllabus for a basic course in the law of evidence has lots of diagrams and pictures. Do you think those picture and diagrams facilitate communication -- or do they impede it?

    How your students will experience/perceive the syllabus is one of those dreaded empirical questions. As a not-student, however, I think it's a nice idea. First, you'd probably end up distributing those diagrams as handouts anyway, so it's good to have them already present in the syllabus. Second, it is a good way to boost the likelihood that your students will carefully attend to the syllabus!
