Evidence, along with Civil Dispute Resolution, is a vital process-focused topic.
This unit introduces students to the legal rules governing the adducing of evidence and the proof of facts in both civil and criminal trials.
The topics covered include:
The focus of the unit will be on the primary legislative sources of the Evidence Act 1995 (NSW) and the Evidence Act 1995 (Cth), as well as the case law interpreting important provisions of that legislation.
The common law will also be considered to the extent that it is relevant in informing the operation of the legislation or where it operates because of gaps in, or omissions from, the legislation.
