Documentary Evidence: The Laws of Australia is the only current text that focuses exclusively on the important topic of documentary evidence in Australia.

This unique work provides comprehensive coverage and analysis of the common law and statutory regimes governing the admissibility of documentary evidence for all Australian jurisdictions, grouped into the following topics:

  • Varieties of documents
  • Common law principles of admissibility, including the hearsay rule, the best evidence rule and the requirement of authentication
  • Admissibility under the Uniform Evidence Acts
  • Business records legislation
  • Admissibility under Australian legislation based on the Evidence Act 1938 (UK)
  • Admissibility of bankers’ books and books of account
      This new edition outlines the impact of legislative reforms such as the adoption of the Uniform Evidence Acts in the Northern Territor, Tasmania and Victoria, and the progression of evidentiary principles in cases including Lithgow City Council v Jackson (2011) 244 CLR 352; 85 ALJR 1130; [2011] HCA 36 and Nolan v Nolan (2003) 10 VR 626; [2003] VSC 121 are explored with concise and insightful commentary.
