Publication Abandoned The Law of Evidence presents an up-to-date analysis of both criminal and civil evidence. It contains a clear statement of the law of evidence, incorporating extensive reference to relevant case law and selected relevant literature.

The book indicates those areas of law where proposals for reform have been put forward and undertakes a critical analysis of current rules where appropriate, in order to provide the reader with practical argument on rules and precedents.

Topics covered in the book range from the law affecting witnesses, evidence of identification and pre-trial disclosure, to the Civil Evidence Act 1968 in so far as it now affects civil proceedings. The book covers all aspects of this area of law thus ensuring practitioners have an essential reference to this complex and important subject.
