Evidentiary Foundations cover


Based on the 6th edition of Professor Imwinkelried's authoritative American text, "Evidentiary Foundations", and amended for the Irish market, this title is a practical guide which explains how the various evidentiary doctrines are applied on a daily basis in the Irish courts. Combining discussion of law and practice, the authors outline a step-by-step approach to laying the necessary foundations for the introduction of items of evidence. Using hypothetical examples, the title illustrates how the substantive rules of evidence convert into concrete lines of questioning in the courtroom. This is the first book of its kind on the Irish market and will provide invaluable practical guidance for practitioners and students of the law of evidence.

This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Irish Criminal Law online service.
