Description of Product

The fourth edition of Evidence and the Litigation Process will be an extremely helpful resource in understanding the principles of the law of evidence and the operation of the litigation process for practitioners. Highly acclaimed in and out of Singapore since it was first published 21 years ago, this book covers four years of critical legal developments since the third edition was published in 2010. They include recently introduced legislation such as the completely revamped Criminal Procedure Code, the wide-ranging amendments to the Evidence Act and new procedural processes. The greatly expanded body of case law is also carefully analysed.

The book also provides a balance between analytical discussion of the principles and the practical application of the law and includes numerous illustrations and practice-related situations for this purpose. It offers practitioners an intensely detailed and integrated portrait of the litigation process (including procedure and advocacy) and is therefore a vital source of reference. The book recognises that this subject is particularly difficult primarily because of the difficulties inherent in the Evidence Act (a significant part of which remains in the state it was enacted in 1893), and the tension between this statute and the constantly developing common law. No effort is spared in tackling these problems and examining all applicable sources of law. This highly successful publication has already sold thousands of copies in the course of the first three editions.
