Summary

This book provides college students in Legal Studies, Criminal Justice, and other law or forensic-related fields with a detailed understanding of evidence law.  


A detailed, hands-on introduction to evidence law

Criminal Evidence uses clear writing and real-world examples to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the laws that determine what make evidence admissible in court, and the factors that make it credible to a jury. Concise but thorough explanations of the legal system, trial processes, and principles of constitutional and criminal law are carefully tailored to provide background on the role of evidence law. Coverage then continues to the rules of evidence and statutory and case law which form the law of evidence in a logical progression, from the attributes which make evidence admissible, to those which make relevant evidence inadmissible. Throughout, practice tips, sample trial transcripts, court opinions, and critical-thinking questions help students develop and retain their understanding. The appendix includes an annotated transcript of testimony taken at an actual criminal trial to give students a look at how evidence law is applied in practice. With its hands-on approach to evidence law, Criminal Evidence clearly explains the law of evidence and the context of that law in a manner that is accessible to students studying criminal justice as well as those studying law.
