The module is directed towards critical analysis of selected rules of evidence, of particular relevance to criminal trials. It aims to provide you with an understanding of the adversarial trial structure and its impact on the content of the law of evidence, particularly in the context of the criminal trial. It also aims to familiarise you with the content of some of the key exclusionary rules; to encourage you to identify and debate current issues within the law of evidence with confidence; and to apply the legal rules and principles within a critical framework.
