This is the third edition of the hugely successful The Law of Evidence. The text gives an up-to-date account of the law of evidence on Ireland. The text will be of interest to all those working in the Irish legal system, the criminal legal system in particular as well as to policy makers and those studying more general issues related to matters of trial, adjudication and fact-finding in various contexts. The text explores the development of a particular Irish dimension to Evidence scholarship, which is based on constitutional notions of fairness. In light of the incorporation of the ECHR this must continue to be influential in this and possibly other jurisdictions. The phenomenon of the Special Criminal Court is considered.

The Criminal Law (Insanity) and (Sexual Offences) Acts of 2006 are examined in this new edition. The Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Act 2007 is considered, as are the Criminal Justice Acts of 2006 and 2007. The caselaw has been brought entirely up to date since the last edition
