Evidence in Context explains the key concepts of evidence law in England and Wales clearly and concisely, set against the backdrop of the broader political and theoretical contexts.
The book helps to inform students of the major debates within the field, providing an explanation as to how and why the law has developed as it has.
This fourth edition has been revised and expanded to include developments in the law of hearsay evidence as well as recent litigation surrounding witness anonymity orders, bad character and vulnerable witnesses, including child witnesses.
It also addresses the on-going controversy and debate about the use of expert witnesses and a new chapter considers the continuing interplay between the UK courts and the European Court of Human Rights as the role of human rights in evidence becomes increasingly important. More detailed consideration of the facts and ratio of key cases will also be included throughout.
Key learning points summarise the major principles and rules and practical examples are used throughout the text to help students to better understand how the rules are applied in practice. Self-test questions are included to encourage students to reflect on what they have learned and check their own understanding and suggested answers are provided on a supporting companion website. Evidence Law is characterised by complex rules, often expressed in arcane language and so for this fourth edition, a glossary of terms will be added to the text, with a flashcard glossary provided online.
Well-written, clear and with a logical structure throughout, it contains all the information necessary for any undergraduate evidence law module.
