Queensland Evidence Law explains and discusses the common law rules of evidence as affected by the Evidence Act 1977 (Qld). The authors address the synthesis of the common law and statutory position to provide a very readable and accessible text that applies a logical and systematic approach to the introduction of each key topic. The easy-to-navigate design supports a clear discussion and analysis of statutory provisions and leading cases to engage readers. To consolidate understanding, each chapter provides a set of self-test questions and a problem question in each of the civil and criminal jurisdictions. Discussion of the position under the Evidence Act 1995 (Cth), the foundation of the Uniform Evidence Acts regime, is included to promote familiarity with the evidence rules applicable to practice in federal matters.
The sixth edition has been revised and updated to reflect recent interpretative developments in case law.
This book is an ideal introduction for students to the law of evidence in the Queensland jurisdiction and an excellent reference for legal practitioners.
