Description
Evidence: Text and Materials explains what is a conceptually difficult topic using a text and materials format, producing a work that has the flow and coherence of a textbook but which also exposes readers to a variety of material from a diversity of sources. It draws together essential cases, statutes and practical readings on civil and criminal evidence, linked by an extensive interpretative commentary.
Both accessible and detailed, the text explores the connection between the rules of evidence and the nature of the common law adversarial trial with its stress on oral testimony, day in court and the examination of witnesses. It provides a firm grounding in the rules of evidence and the relationship between evidence and procedure, placing that relationship, wherever possible, in the broader context of the criminal and civil justice systems.
The new second edition incorporates the many legislative developments that have occurred since the last edition published including the fundamental changes resulting from the Criminal Justice Act 2003. The work also covers all recent key case decisions, including key appellate and European decisions.
