Litigation II: Evidence and Criminal Process
Hunter, J; Cameron, C; Henning, T
Format: Practitioner & Academic, Softcover , Book
Lawyers understand the pivotal role of the law of evidence and procedure in the actualisation and protection of fundamental legal rights. In the last decade this law has undergone massive change. The 7th edition of Litigation: Evidence and Procedure is unique in its breadth and depth of coverage and has vastly expanded on its predecessors. Its two volumes, Litigation I: Civil Procedure and Litigation II: Evidence and Criminal Process provide a unified and comprehensive analysis of the law and related issues, both pre-trial and trial, in civil matters and criminal prosecutions. They contain a comprehensive exposition of evidence and procedural laws across Australia.
Volume II provides a comprehensive analysis of the uniform Evidence Acts, and addresses extensive Commonwealth and state legislation and case law in the fields of police investigation and prosecutor's powers and duties. It contains new chapters on judicial discretions and identification evidence, with a special focus on the law's treatment of witnesses in the criminal trial and on the unique challenges affecting the accused in the criminal justice system. Students, practitioners and anyone with a scholarly interest in the workings of Australia's justice system will find both volumes key primary sources. They will appreciate the book's unique integration of evidence and procedure supported with a commentary that embraces a contextualised approach to legal doctrine.
