This book sets out the rules of evidence, as they apply in Australian courts, in a manner designed to be highly accessible and readily comprehensible. Equal treatment is given to both the uniform evidence legislation - now applicable in Federal Courts and in the courts of the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and Tasmania - and the common law that applies in the remaining Australian jurisdictions. This edition has been completely rewritten to take account of major case law and statutory developments since the first edition. It details the key divergences and convergences in the law of evidence across Australia and addresses a number of significant international comparisons.br Examples are used throughout the text to illustrate the practical application of the law, while diagrams graphically summarise complex legal issues as they apply throughout Australia.
