Dennis' The Law of Evidence provides thorough analysis of the law of evidence, while placing the subject within its theoretical context. The work goes beyond other textbooks to explain the intricacies of the law of evidence while still remaining easy to understand. The information is presented in a logical structure following on from the introduction of the basic concepts through to the exclusionary rules of the law of evidence.

Dennis offers an integrated approach to evidence which includes essential doctrinal analysis. It takes account of evidence theory, psychological research on information processing and retrieval, socio-legal work on police investigations, and jury research projects.

  • Offers comprehensive doctrinal analysis of all the major topics in evidence
  • Is written in a clear and accessible style
  • Contains extensive references to further reading
  • Presents an integrated approach which takes account of evidence theory, human rights jurisprudence, psychological research on human observation and memory, socio-legal work on police investigations, and jury research projects
The Law of Evidence is an ideal textbook for undergraduate students and those studying evidence at postgraduate level; and those on vocational courses such as the LPC and BPTC will find it an invaluable source of reference.
