The Law of Evidence

The Law of Evidence

4th edition

By David M Paciocco and Lee Stuesser

CONTENTS
This highly readable, frequently-cited work combines practical guidance and expert academic commentary making it ideal for use in trial and appellate courts, and in the classroom. The book provides expert analysis of new developments in evidentiary law since the publication of the third edition in 2002. It is the most current treatise on the subject available today. In total, more than 150 new appeal cases have been incorporated in this edition, either because they have moved the law along or because they provide excellent illustrations of established evidentiary rules. Paciocco and Stuesser's Law of Evidence will remain the most versatile and accessible work on the law of evidence in Canada.
