Evidence: Text & Materials provides a 'one-stop', readily accessible resource for students studying the law of evidence.

It offers an exceptionally clear and lucid presentation of the law, effectively introducing and guiding students through this challenging and stimulating subject.

Interwoven with the author's incisive explanatory commentary are extracts from key cases, essential articles, and academic books. Exposure to these materials will help the student to develop a truly in-depth undersanding of the key principles of the law of evidence, and a keen awareness of how these principles are applied in modern practice. Particular attention is paid to the major developments and judgments that have transformed this subject in recent years.

  • Combines an authoritative textbook approach with integrated excerpts from key case reports and academic journals, providing first-hand the primary materials that students need to develop their skills and knowledge
  • Cross-reference points, 'pause for reflection' boxes, end of chapter summaries, and problem questions all help to reinforce students' learning and encourage them to engage with the text at an analytical level, thereby helping to prepare them for examination
  • The 14 chapter structure maps closely to single semester modules on the law of evidence, making this the ideal text for use on such modules
  • An Online Resource Centre accompanies the book, including regular updates to the law, web links, and guideline answers to the problem questions
