Description

"Cross and Tapper on Evidence" discusses the theory and practice of this field, and provides criticism and comment on the law, drawing on numerous recent cases to illustrate the workings of the law.

Major changes brought about by the new legislation, including those relating to the effect on acquittals, all the rules relating to character, and the hearsay rule in criminal cases, have been fully incorporated into the text.show more
