  • Details

    Evidence in Criminal Trials is a new Irish legal title providing a comprehensive, dedicated examination of the subject and covers the vast majority of issues addressed in law school courses on evidence.

    It is the only evidence title on the market that deals with international developments regarding criminal evidence and electronic disclosure and is written by one of the leading academics in this field, in conjunction with Úna Ní Raifeartaigh, one of the most renowned criminal barristers in the jurisdiction.

    The law of evidence comprises the rules which govern the presentation of facts and proof in proceedings before a court. It is a subject of enormous importance to both practitioners and students.

    Over the past 20-30 years, Irish law in this area has increasingly diverged from UK law, making UK texts decreasingly useful to Irish practitioners and students.
