TO THE FAST-MOVING FIELD OF EVIDENCE
An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
The key concepts of the modern law of evidence are set out clearly and concisely by Jonathan Doak and Claire McGourlay in their new third edition which has changed its title to `Evidence in Context'. They explain away the change by widening the scope of the work to take account of developments in civil law. We welcome the two new chapters on adversarial trial and suspect evidence and the example scenarios which do assist an understanding of what can be a complex subject to many learners.
The new edition is certainly both accessible and stimulating because the authors have concentrated on those topics which tend to feature most commonly on courses for the law of evidence.
Any lecturer or student of evidence knows that the subject does not readily lend itself to the integration of what is called the contextual perspective so what is refreshing about this work is the inclusion of wider policy debates and societal trends which undergraduate courses often contain.
For the practitioner, the gap between the practice of law and `the law of the books' is well highlighted although as Doak and McGourlay admit both threads do not always sit comfortably together in precise harmony.
A particular benefit of the book for the wider readership is the exploration of the practical significance of the rules of evidence which is what the trainee solicitor or barrister will be looking for.Read more ›
