Text & Materials

Second Edition

Gregory Durston

  • Combines an authoritative textbook approach with integrated excerpts from key case reports and academic journals, providing first-hand the primary materials that students need to develop their skills and knowledge
  • Cross-reference points, 'pause for reflection' boxes, end of chapter summaries, and problem questions all help to reinforce students' learning and encourage them to engage with the text at an analytical level, thereby helping to prepare them for examination
  • The 14 chapter structure maps closely to single semester modules on the law of evidence, making this the ideal text for use on such modules
  • An Online Resource Centre accompanies the book, including regular updates to the law, web links, and guideline answers to the problem questions

New to this Edition:

  • Fully updated to cover all key developments in the law since publication of the first edition, including: relevant human rights related jurisprudence; 'closed' evidence in terrorism trials; anonymous witness evidence; the latest post-Criminal Justice Act case law.
