The "Modern Law of Evidence" is well established as a clear and comprehensive treatment of the complex subject of the contemporary law of evidence. The author examines the theory of the law, as well as its practical application, with the emphasis on recent discussion and modern aspects of the subject. This new edition covers important recent developments, including in particular the radical changes to hearsay and evidence of bad character brought about by the Criminal Justice Act 2003. It also reflects on important new case law, including the growing jurisprudence arising out of the Human Rights Act 1998 and the European Convention on Human Rights. The book has been cited with approval by the highest appellate courts and is an ideal text for undergraduate students and students studying for the BVC and the LPC, as well as practitioners and judges.
