The ideal revision aid, "Questions and Answers Evidence" is divided into chapters covering each major topic students will need to understand and contains fifty questions and answers designed to test even the best prepared student. Each chapter contains an introduction focusing on important legal aspects and points of interest. After each question, there is a commentary which highlights the essential elements of each question and indicates what the examiners are looking for. The new edition includes guidance on assessing the impact of the Human Rights Act on the law of evidence. It also examines the many radical changes introduced by the Criminal Justice Act 2003 particularly in the areas of character and hearsay evidence. This text is an excellent aid to students who need guidance on how to use their knowledge and understanding in the examination, addressing the specific demands of application, analysis, evaluation. The new edition is accompanied by a companion web site which includes links to key web sites useful for any students studying evidence, and a glossary of key terms that all students should understand.
