    DescriptionInnovations in Evidence and Proof brings together fifteen leading scholars and experienced law teachers based in Australia, Canada, Northern Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, the USA and England and Wales to explore and debate the latest developments in Evidence and Proof scholarship. The essays comprising this volume range expansively over questions of disciplinary taxonomy, pedagogical method and computer-assisted learning, doctrinal analysis, fact-finding, techniques of adjudication, the ethics of cross-examination, the implications of behavioural science research for legal procedure, human rights, comparative law and international criminal trials. Communicating the breadth, dynamism and intensity of contemporary theoretical innovation in their diversity of subject-matter and approach, the authors nonetheless remain united by a common purpose: to indicate how the best interdisciplinary theorising and research might be integrated directly into degree-level Evidence teaching. Innovations in Evidence and Proof is published at an exciting time of theoretical renewal and increasing empirical sophistication in legal evidence, proof and procedure scholarship. This groundbreaking collection will be essential reading for Evidence teachers, and will also engage the interest and imagination of scholars, researchers and students investigating issues of evidence and proof in any legal system, municipal, transnational or global.

    Review quote
    This edited volume... constitutes a timely call to action for theorists, researchers and instructors of evidence everywhere. This collection does a commendable job of indeed providing inspiration Carole McCartney, School of Law, University of Leeds Law, Probability and Risk 2009, 8 ...scholars in the field of civil evidence may find a lot of interesting developments in the essays collected in the book, notwithstanding the fact that they are primarily focused upon criminal evidence...extremely useful for experts of both criminal and civil evidence, in any country within the civil law part of the world. Michele Taruffo International Commentary on Evidence Vol. 5, Issue 2, 2007 ...Innovations in Evidence and Proof' constitutes a welcome and timely publication, and is essential reading for anyone serious abut developing their scholarship and teaching within the law of evidence... the book has also much to say to a wider academic audience about the value of multidisciplinary and comparative scholarship'. Jonathan Doak Criminal Law Review Overall, this book represents an excellent introduction to many of the themes in contemporary Anglo-American evidence research. Deidre Dwyer Civil Justice Quarterly 2009 This is an extremely valuable introduction to the current range of evidence scholarship. It is to be commended in particular to those who teach evidence law, or have an interest in the subject, to assist them in keeping up to date with the breadth of current research. Deidre Dwyer Law Quarterly Review 2009 ...a pleasure to read and a valuable stimulus and resource for teachers of evidence law...Innovations gives all of us reason to rethink how we teach evidence, and to that extent amply succeeds in its purpose. Hamish Stewart Canadian Criminal Law Review Volume 13, Number 3, Sept 2009
