Product Description

The Law of Evidence in South Africa: Basic Principles provides a clear, practical and innovative introduction to the law of evidence in South Africa. The text provides a straightforward approach to the law of evidence. It follows a logical sequence, commencing with general principles, followed by trial procedures and rules, then followed by methods of evaluating evidence and, finally, considering the application of exclusionary rules in context. Contemporary innovations in the law of evidence, such as polygraphs, voice-stress analysers and neurotechnology, are also discussed.

The text clarifies and explains a complex subject in a style that encourages understanding. Practical in its approach, it provides step-by-step guidance, with numerous case illustrations and practical examples. The text is supported, in addition, by diagrams, and a comprehensive glossary that defines the terms and concepts which appear in the book.
