The Modern Law of Evidence is well established and widely relied upon as a lucid, engaging, and authoritative exposition of the contemporary law of evidence. Straightforward and practical in its approach, this textbook also provides concise analysis of the theory behind the law, with the emphasis on recent discussion and current topics within the subject.

The eighth edition has been carefully developed and updated to ensure that it remains a thorough and reliable resource for its readers. In particular, it provides:

- Up to date coverage of all the developments in the law following the Criminal Justice Act 2003, especially in the areas of hearsay and evidence of character
- A greater degree of evaluation and analysis of the law, to help students directly engage with areas of topical interest
- Further reading sections, to guide readers forward in their studies

This book is an ideal text for undergraduates and students studying on the BVC and LPC. It has been cited with approval by the highest appellate courts, thereby cementing its reputation as a useful reference for practitioners and judges.
