Combining straightforward explanation with scholarly analysis, Law of Evidence introduces students to the full range of topics covered in law of evidence courses, with clarity and depth. Highlighting the context within which the law operates, the textbook maintains an engaging narrative with a strong practical focus. Integrated extracts from key judgments and statutes, as well as academic articles and books, lead students to develop a deeper understanding of the subject, and detailed commentary on these extracts helps students develop the ability to read and analyse case law effectively. Student learning is further supported by numerous visual aids, including diagrams, flowcharts and tables, which illustrate the relationships between principles and provisions and clarify the complex aspects of the law. A companion website with regular updates to the text ensures that students always have the most up-to-date coverage of the law at their fingertips.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a useful addition to the literature on evidence. Students often struggle with the technical aspects of evidence, and this book approaches the law in a clear, accessible manner.' Colin King, University of Sussex
'A critical and contextual rendition of the rules of evidence in civil and criminal proceedings. The author adopts a lucid and magisterial style of writing which makes the text navigable for beginners and legal practitioners alike. It is an up-to-date text on evidence incorporating the views of other text-writers and discussing not only the statutory provisions on evidence but also the impact of European Convention Jurisprudence on the rules of evidence (both civil and criminal) by reference to British and Strasbourg cases. The key strength of this text is the inclusion of a summary, self-test questions and selected texts for further reading in each chapter - an invaluable tool for undergraduate and postgraduate students. It is a text that should be compulsory reading not only for undergraduate and postgraduate students in law and criminal justice ... but also for lecturers and legal practitioners.' Solomon E. Salako, Liverpool Hope University
'An extremely well-written and clearly presented textbook. The author's deep knowledge of the law of evidence is conveyed in a manner which is both understandable and suitably challenging for the undergraduate reader. An invaluable resource for any student studying the law of evidence.' Rebecca Gladwin-Geoghegan, Coventry University Law School
'The book strikes a good balance between giving students an overview of the particular topics and giving them detailed knowledge of the cases they will need to understand. Excerpts from the cases are interspersed throughout at appropriate points.' William O'Brian, Jr, University of Warwick
'... an extremely well-written and clearly presented textbook on a difficult subject matter. Monaghan's expert knowledge of the law of evidence is set out in a manner which is both understandable and suitably challenging for law students.' Phillip Taylor, The Barrister
