Choo's Evidence provides students with a lucid account of the core principles of the law of civil and criminal evidence in England and Wales, whilst also exploring the fundamental rationales that underlie the law as a whole. This clear and engaging text explores current debates and draws on different jurisdictions to achieve a fascinating mix of critical and thought provoking analysis for students and practitioners alike. Where appropriate the author draws on comparative material and a variety of socio-legal, empirical,and non-legal material. Also, thorough footnoting and further reading lists provide valuable signposting to a wealth of additional sources.
Andrew Choo is a Professor of Law at City University London and a barrister at Matrix Chambers. He is a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Evidence and Proof.
