Titles in the Core Text series take the reader straight to the heart of the subject, providing focused, concise, and reliable guides for students at all levels. This introductory chapter discusses the origins of a ‘law of evidence’ and the properties of the law of evidence. The law of evidence is rapidly evolving. Since it determines the critical issue of which particular items of proof parties are actually permitted to produce before a court in support of their contentions, it would be hard to exaggerate the subject’s importance and relevance.
