The third edition of this popular text continues in the best tradition of the Greens Concise Scots Law series, providing a clear, succinct and detailed treatment of the law of evidence in Scotland. The author, Fiona Raitt brings the law up-to-date as at June 2001, taking into account recent major constitutional changes contained in the Scotland Act 1998 and the Human Rights Act 1998. The text provides broad coverage of the principles and concepts of evidence, identifying areas where the impact of human rights jurisprudence will be most keenly felt and drawing comparisons with English law where appropriate. Evidence encourages ease of reference and the discussion of cases used in illustrating key concepts, rules and principles provides a foundation for further critical analysis of the case law and of statutory provisions. The result is a comprehensive yet accessible book equally suited to the needs of law students and legal practitioners.
