About the Authors
  • Australian Uniform Evidence Law offers a practical, clear and student-friendly introduction to the law of evidence and its operation across Uniform Evidence Act jurisdictions. Using a logical structure, with the Evidence Act 1995 (Cth) as its point of reference, this text introduces basic concepts before leading into more detailed coverage of the Act. Curated cases and excerpts from the legislation, with clear summaries and explanations of the rules, help students understand the application of the Act. Practice problems at the end of each chapter provide students with the opportunity to test their knowledge of each topic. Additionally, a 'Putting it all together' chapter at the end of the text challenges students with complex problems. Guided solutions, a summary of the key points discussed, key terms and definitions, and guides to further reading are included for each chapter. Providing clear explanation and engaging examples, this highly readable text is an essential resource for students.

    • Presents a clear and accessible text with a logical structure, written for students
    • Includes well-chosen and curated case extracts and legislation
    • Practise problems are included in each chapter with 'Putting it all together' problems at the end of the book to show how the topics interrelate with each other

    'I completed an LLB [Hons] last year and have just finished my PLT coursework through the College of Law with an HD average, but have always struggled with evidence Law - much to my embarrassment, it was my worst subject at university! I came across a positive reference to your book and bought it for future reference. Now that I have finished my PLT coursework, that time has come. Right from the start, I was able to follow the book - it is well written and makes perfect sense, right from the definition of evidence given at the start. As I want to eventually become a barrister, I know that evidence is most important: thanks to your text, I now feel confident that I can tackle this important legal topic.' Seraphina Goldsmith, The College of Law
