Description
'Law of Evidence' more than any other branch of law is composed of rules built on useful expediency and the understanding of real litigation. It is closely linked with human nature and society. The premises on which many of the rules of evidence are constructed, and the procedures in which they are rooted, in large part are the result of the views of the original framers of the law about human psychology. It rests on the way how people make judgments and draw inferences from verbal and other reports about objects and events, and about the organization and operation of Courts. Mere reading of a treatise on a subject like the law of evidence does not give a comprehensive insight about the subtleties or the purpose of rules relating to relevancy, admissibility and generation of belief in the mind of the triers of the fact. Experience according to James FitzJames Stephan gives by degrees, in favourable cases, a comprehensive acquaintance with the principles of the law with which a practitioner is conversant. This book is the outcome of the deep understanding and knowledge of the author on the nuances of the law of evidence, which he gained as a lawyer, judge and educator. The topics are arranged in such a way that it would be easy for a practitioner to locate the exact point which is relevant in any given circumstance. The index and appendices are also arranged in such a fashion that the book would be a convenient handbook for lawyers, judges, and students of law. Apart from being a handy guide for the practitioner, the distinctiveness of this work is the treatment of the topics relating to evaluation of testimonial and documentary evidence, particularly shedding light on the question of proof, explicitly the generation of belief in the trier of the fact on facts which are pivotal to adjudication in a given case.

................................................................................................................DescriptionThe law has not laid down any clear standard for the sufficiency of evidence to induce belief. Belief is rarely the consequence of a strictly logical process and sometimes the same evidence which to one may be convincing, to another may be absurd. But nevertheless the matter of believing is not left to the mere intuition of an individual judge for a judge in believing or disbelieving evidence acts on his reason in conformity with his knowledge, observations and experience which always furnish adequate grounds for believing or disbelieving evidence.Circumstances evidence is just like a rope made of many strands to stay together. The rope has strength more than sufficient to bear the stress laid upon it though no one of the filaments of which it is composed would be sufficient for thatpurpose..............................................................................
