Innovations in Evidence and Proof
Innovations in Evidence and Proof brings together fifteen leading scholars and experienced law teachers - based in the US, Australia, Canada, Northern Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, England, and Wales - to explore and debate the latest developments in Evidence and Proof scholarship. The essays comprising this volume range expansively over questions of disciplinary taxonomy, pedagogical method and computer-assisted learning, doctrinal analysis, fact-finding, techniques of adjudication, the ethics of cross-examination, the implications of behavioral science research for legal procedure, human rights, comparative law, and international criminal trials. Communicating the breadth, dynamism, and intensity of contemporary theoretical innovation in their diversity of subject-matter and approach, the contributors nonetheless remain united by a common purpose: to indicate how the best interdisciplinary theorizing and research might be integrated directly into degree-level Evidence teaching. The book - now in paperback - is published at an exciting time of theoretical renewal and increasing empirical sophistication in legal evidence, proof, and procedure scholarship. This groundbreaking collection will be essential reading for Evidence teachers, and will also engage the interest and imagination of scholars, researchers, and students investigating issues of evidence and proof in any legal system, municipal, transnational or global.
