Murphy on Evidence is firmly established as a leading student text, framing the law of evidence in its practical context, suitable for both undergraduates as well as those studying for professional law exams. Frequently consulted by judges and practitioners, and regularly cited in judgments, it has come to be regarded as a work of authority throughout the common law world.

The book's unique approach effectively bridges the gap between the academic study of the law of evidence and its application in practice, combining detailed analysis of the law with a wealth of practical information about how it is used in the courtroom.

The book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre, which contains:-

  • Supporting documents and multimedia resources for the two fictional cases, including Prosecution and defence case papers Police interviews (incl. transcripts, audio, and video) Witness statements Criminal procedure forms Civil claim forms
  • A range of multiple-choice questions enabling students to test their knowledge
  • A list of useful web links
