Evidence in Family Proceedings

Commentary

Edition: 1st
The present mainstream books on evidence do not include coverage of certain features which are unique to family law - eg special law and procedure on hearsay and other rules of evidence (eg litigation privilege and expert evidence) in children proceedings; and the rules on disclosure in financial relief proceedings. At the same time, family lawyers do not always take account of the extent to which they depend on the common law and the rules of evidence which are defined by such mainstream texts.

Accordingly, this specialist title defines the general rules of evidence as they apply to family matters, while the range of rules which apply specifically to family proceedings are also covered in detail.

This title is relevant to all family lawyers, and related professionals such as expert witnesses, social workers, guardians and lay advisers.
