Innovations in Evidence and Proof
Integrating Theory, Research and Teaching
Innovations in Evidence and Proof brings together fifteen leading scholars and experienced law teachers based in Australia, Canada, Northern Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, the USA and England and Wales to explore and debate the latest developments in Evidence and Proof scholarship. The essays comprising this volume range expansively over questions of disciplinary taxonomy, pedagogical method and computer-assisted learning, doctrinal analysis, fact-finding, techniques of adjudication, the ethics of cross-examination, the implications of behavioural science research for legal procedure, human rights, comparative law and international criminal trials. Communicating the breadth, dynamism and intensity of contemporary theoretical innovation in their diversity of subject-matter and approach, the authors nonetheless remain united by a common purpose: to indicate how the best interdisciplinary theorising and research might be integrated directly into degree-level Evidence teaching. Innovations in Evidence and Proof is published at an exciting time of theoretical renewal and increasing empirical sophistication in legal evidence, proof and procedure scholarship. This groundbreaking collection will be essential reading for Evidence teachers, and will also engage the interest and imagination of scholars, researchers and students investigating issues of evidence and proof in any legal system, municipal, transnational or global..extremely useful for experts of both criminal and civil evidence, in any country within the civil law part of the world.Michele Taruffo, International Commentary on Evidence..Innovations in Evidence and Proof constitutes a welcome and timely publication, and is essential reading for anyone serious about developing their scholarship and teaching within the law of evidence.. the book has also much to say to a wider academic audience about the value of multidisciplinary and comparative scholarship.Jonathan Doak, Criminal Law Review
