Phipson on Evidence, a prominent component of the Common Law Library series, is the foremost resource on both civil and criminal evidence. This comprehensive work thoroughly explores every facet of the principles and processes constituting the law of evidence. It delves into various topics, such as the introduction of evidence, the level of proof required, witness presence, moral and immoral conduct, legal confidentiality, indirect information, expert testimonies, confessions, judicial flexibility, and numerous other issues related to evidence.

Key Features of Phipson on Evidence, 20th ed:

This authoritative work serves as a leading reference on civil and criminal evidence, often cited in court. It is authored by a distinguished team of experts, striking a balance between seasoned practitioners and scholars. The text meticulously incorporates all revisions introduced by the Civil Procedure Rules and the Criminal Procedure Rules. It delves into the intricate principles and procedures constituting the law of evidence, covering topics such as evidence admission, pre-trial evidence, trial evidence rules, witness examination, burden and standard of proof, good and bad character, privilege, and evidence excluded due to public policy. The book explores hearsay in both civil and criminal proceedings, as well as the inclusion and exclusion of extrinsic evidence. It scrutinizes judicial discretion in admitting or excluding evidence, drawing on a wide array of case law, including that from Commonwealth countries.

This new edition encompasses crucial legal developments, including the addition of a chapter on evidence in arbitration and another on evidence assessment. It also provides insightful commentary on recent cases involving Legal Professional Privilege (LPP), such as the Court of Appeal's ruling in The Civil Aviation Authority v The Queen concerning Ltd [2020] EWCA Civ 35. Additionally, the book discusses significant cases like PCP Capital Partners v Barclays Bank Plc [2020] EWHC 1393 and State of Qatar v Banque Havilland SA & Ors [2021] EWHC 2172 (Comm). The chapter on expert evidence has been extensively revamped to reflect the latest developments in this field.
