Evidence Summary

Evidence: 2009-2010 by The City Law School

Drawing on the authors' own extensive experience of practice at the Bar, Evidence provides an excellent introduction to the essential principles underpinning the law of evidence in both civil and criminal litigation. Adopting a highly practical approach to the subject, the manual examines not only the key principles of evidence but also considers their application in practice equipping the trainee barrister with the ability to apply their knowledge during pupillage. Realistic examples, problems, case studies, questions, and diagrams are featured throughout enhancing the pragmatic approach of the manual and ensuring that the reader develops a full understanding of the laws governing the use of evidence in both civil and criminal proceedings. Evidence is essential reading for all trainee barristers, and is also a useful source of reference for junior practitioners wishing to refresh their knowledge of the rules of evidence applicable during litigation
