Compact and easily referenced, The Portable Guide to Evidence, 2nd edition uses excerpts from Canadian court decisions to provide a comprehensive review of the law of evidence. Offering a quick refresher when evidentiary arguments arise unexpectedly, together with compelling authority for use in argument, this book is an indispensable tool for litigation counsel.

  • Updated commentary and chapter headings organized around the types of evidentiary objections often raised by counsel in court, in chambers and before administrative tribunals
  • Direct quotes and excerpts from leading cases to explain basic principles of evidence law
