“The cadre of authors, all in the prime of very active and successful careers at the criminal bar, have produced what will quickly become a 'go to' text.”
—Justice David H. Doherty
General Editors: Brian H. Greenspan and Justice Vincenzo Rondinelli
Modern Criminal Evidence is the first major treatise to provide a truly practical and comprehensive guide to criminal evidence law in Canada. Unlike other texts in this area, this book’s practical approach guides readers through evidentiary issues in all components of criminal law, providing indispensable insight from Crown, defence, and judicial perspectives.
National in scope, this modern interpretation of criminal evidence law provides insight into a diverse range of topics: judicial fact-finding, pre-trial considerations, expert evidence, circumstantial evidence, hearsay, character evidence, digital evidence, examination of witnesses, and the intersection of proceedings.
Authored by a team of criminal law experts, including members of the criminal bar and judiciary, Modern Criminal Evidence is the most up-to-date resource for criminal litigators and judges searching for practical answers to their evidentiary questions.
