Choo's Evidence provides students with a lucid account of the core principles of the law of civil and criminal evidence in England and Wales, whilst also exploring the fundamental rationales that underlie the law as a whole.

This clear and engaging text explores current debates and draws on different jurisdictions to achieve a fascinating mix of critical and thought-provoking analysis for students and practitioners alike. Where appropriate the author draws on comparative material and a variety of socio-legal, empirical, and non-legal material. Also, thorough footnoting and further reading lists provide valuable signposting to a wealth of additional sources.

Review quote

Provides a high level of academic discussion, concisely summarised. Feedback from my students is overwhelmingly positive. * Chris Broad, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Chester * An attractive text- accessible but does not oversimplify, setting evidential issues in their wider context. * Susan Easton, Professor of Law, Brunel University * A concise, comprehensive and compelling guide, and a must-read for any student of the law of evidence. * Cathal MacPartholan, Law Tutor, University College of Estate Management * Review from previous edition The book is excellent in covering as much material as it does in just over 400 pages. The best book out there for our students. * Bill O'Brian, Associate Professor of Law, Warwick University *
