Description

Principles of Evidence in Criminal Cases provides a starting point for anyone studying the law of evidence as it applies in criminal proceedings. The primary aim of the book is to explain the reasons why the law controls the admissibility of evidence and the way in which it is controlled.

The book’s structure is intended to enable readers to quickly grasp the essential principles of the law of criminal evidence. The chapters begin with an explanation of the rationale behind particular rules of criminal evidence, followed by a description of the New Zealand approach to the regulation of such evidence. Principles of Evidence in Criminal Cases also encourages a critical contemporary analysis of the law of criminal evidence. 

Since its initial publication in 2007, The Evidence Act 2006: Act and Analysis has been the leading and authoritative New Zealand text on the Act. Cited extensively in judicial decisions and academic writing, its section-by-section commentary blends description, analysis and critique in a wide-ranging explanation of the Act, its underlying principles and its individual provisions.

Comprehensively cross-referenced and organised in an accessible format, this 3rd edition provides an updated examination of the Evidence Act and a thorough treatment of noteworthy court decisions (past and present) from the New Zealand Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court. The book also highlights The 2013 Review of the Evidence Act 2006 by the New Zealand Law Commission and previews future amendments to the Act proposed by both the Law Commission and the New Zealand Cabinet.  

The Evidence Act 2006: Act and Analysis (3rd edition) is written by a team of New Zealand’s foremost evidence law academics. They bring their unique perspectives to this latest volume, which provides an inestimable treatment, both scholarly and practical, of the law of evidence in New Zealand today.
