Cross and Tapper on Evidence

Colin Tapper

The eleventh edition of the renowned Cross and Tapper on Evidence provides detailed coverage of a fast moving and important subject. It carefully considers the full implications of the Criminal Justice Act 2003, with a particular focus on the interpretation, by the courts, of the radical changes to the law relating to the admissibility of evidence of the bad character of the accused, and of hearsay. The ways in which the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights continues to penetrate English law are also fully evaluated. On the civil side, this new edition reflects on recent decisions in the area of private privilege, especially in relation to legal professional privilege. In addition, it considers and evaluates the principal changes proposed by various law reform bodies and lobbying groups.

This focused and detailed book retains its wide coverage of materials from the principal common law jurisdictions. This comparative material provides an excellent basis for the critical analysis and appraisal of English law. Cross and Tapper on Evidence remains the most all-embracing text on the law of evidence available, and will be of great use to students and practitioners alike.
