"" This popular work clarifies and explains the complicated rules governing the law of evidence, in a straightforward and easily-comprehensible style. The text is divided into two main sections - 'proof' and 'admissibility' and the material is presented in the form of article and explanation. Text takes account of the Children Act 1989, the three Criminal Justice Acts which have been passed since the last edition appeared in 1988, and the substantial amount of new case law under PACE""
