The Law of Witnesses and Evidence in Canada (formerly Witnesses) (Print & ProView)

Availability: Partial Stock

The Law of Witnesses and Evidence in Canada is a leading comprehensive treatment of the law of evidence as it applies to evidence given by witnesses in civil and criminal proceedings, as well as before administrative tribunals, public inquiries, and legislative committees. This is a practical reference work, providing coverage and expert analysis of evidentiary issues as they arise in these types of proceedings.

Individual chapters examine testimonial evidence under subjects such as competence, compellability, compelling attendance, examination and cross-examination, and privilege.

In this work, special topics receive specific coverage in dedicated chapters, including:

  • Expert witnesses
  • Problematic witnesses
  • Absent witnesses
  • Witnesses before Parliament

This completely revised work also introduces six new chapters on a variety of topics and continues on the standards of excellence established by Witnesses, originally authored by Alan W. Mewett and Peter Sankoff.
