ISBN13: 978-0521673167
ISBN10: 052167316X

Summary: This extensively revised second edition is a rigorous introduction to the construction and criticism of arguments about questions of fact, and to the marshalling and evaluation of evidence at all stages of litigation. It covers the principles underlying the logic of proof; the uses and dangers of story-telling; standards for decision and the relationship between probabilities and proof; the chart method and other methods of analyzing and ordering evidence in fact-inv
estigation, in preparing for trial, and in connection with other important decisions in legal processes and in criminal investigation and intelligence analysis. Most of the chapters in this new edition have been rewritten; the treatment of fact investigation, probabilities and narrative has been extended; and new examples and exercises have been added. Designed as a flexible tool for undergraduate and postgraduate courses on evidence and proof, students, practitioners and teachers alike will find this book challenging but rewarding.
  • A practical, concrete and lively introduction to a basic set of intellectual skills that have traditionally been neglected in legal education
  • Integrates the logic of proof with the law of evidence and trial practice
  • New edition places a greater emphasis on fact investigations, and has been made more 'user friendly' and more flexible for selective use in a variety of courses: new examples and exercises have been added
