It is impossible to anticipate every conceivable type of evidence you may intend to submit. Evidence is a year-long law school course. Civil procedure is likewise a year-long law school course. Completing both courses provides a very basic fundamental understanding that you would generally build on in more practical law school courses like trial advocacy, mock trial, or legal clinics. With this basic understanding, lawyers can generally practice effectively with more experienced lawyers supervising them in trials and evidentiary hearings for the first ten years or so of actual practice. If an attorney is cut out for litigation and encounters a broad enough range of evidentiary challenges in his early career, he/she will usually get the hang of how to submit evidence by the tenth year or so of practicing law.

A: To submit evidence for your trial case at the Jackson County Courthouse in Kansas, begin by reviewing the local rules that govern the procedures for evidence submission. Organize your evidence in a clear and well-labeled manner, which may include documents, photographs, or other relevant materials. Notify opposing parties about the evidence you intend to present, as required by the rules. Provide copies of the evidence to the court, either by physically delivering them to the court clerk's office or using any available electronic filing systems. When the trial date arrives, bring the original evidence with you and be prepared to follow the judge's instructions on introducing the evidence and questioning witnesses. It's crucial to understand and adhere to the Missouri Rules of Civil Procedure and the Missouri Rules of Evidence, which dictate how evidence is presented, admitted, and handled during the trial process.
