    The authoritative guide to the law of evidence.

    Wigmore's great work continues to influence the law of evidence as we move into the 21st century. From doctrinal considerations such as the nature of inference and the exclusionary rules to case analysis involving such up-to-the-minute controversies as DNA "fingerprinting" and patient-psychotherapist privilege, this annually supplemented masterwork continues to provide authoritative guidance again and again. With the most comprehensive coverage you'll find anywhere, Wigmore on Evidence encompasses all this and more:
