Publication Abandoned The Law of Evidence presents an up-to-date analysis of both criminal and civil evidence. It contains a clear statement of the law of evidence, incorporating extensive reference to relevant case law and selected relevant literature.

The book indicates those areas of law where proposals for reform have been put forward and undertakes a critical analysis of current rules where appropriate, in order to provide the reader with practical argument on rules and precedents.
