As well as such basic concerns as relevance and the court's discretion to exclude technically admissible evidence, these topics include the burden of proof and presumptions, the course of the trial, the competence and compellability of witnesses, the opinion rule, the rule against hearsay, the law governing the admissibility of confessions and the rules affecting the so-called right of silence, in addition to the various principles that regulate the admission of character evidence.
