Uniform Evidence Law 10th Edition is the leading Australian guide to uniform evidence legislation, widely used by practitioners and students alike. This highly anticipated new edition incorporates a wide range of new developments over the past two years, including:

  • The extension of uniform evidence laws to the A.C.T. and the Northern Territory;
  • Key High Court judgments, including those relating to opinion and expert evidence, such as Dasreef Pty Ltd v Hawchar and Lithgow City Council v Jackson;
  • Judicial analysis and application of major changes to the UEL following ALRC Report 102, such as to the “fresh in the memory” test and limitations on the “Longman warning”;
  • Detailed consideration of the ongoing question of when a witness may be said to “object” to giving evidence on the basis of potential self-incrimination;
  • Decisions concerning the circumstances in which privilege may be lost;
  • Discussion of numerous appellate judgements in NSW and Victoria regarding tendency evidence and coincidence evidence; and
  • Reference to the recent judgments of the Victorian Court of Appeal regarding the rule in Browne v Dunn, particularly in criminal proceedings.
Stephen Odgers SC continues to provide his incisive analysis and insights into the latest developments, using his extensive Bar experience and his background in both law reform and academia to ensure this landmark title remains current and comprehensive.

In particular, he seamlessly incorporates the ACT and Northern Territory into the commentary and analysis, supported by fresh comparative tables for each which will enable the reader to readily navigate the law in these new jurisdictions.

In this edition, Uniform Evidence Law again makes extensive reference to NSW and Victorian Bench books for guidance on judicial directions to juries and includes relevant extracts from criminal procedure legislation from NSW and Victoria.

Over a quarter of the evidence legislation’s provisions are subjected to significant judicial interpretation each year, making it essential to have a current copy of the annotated Act at hand, to stay abreast of developments.

With its popular and highly accessible annotated legislation format and comprehensive commentary on the ALRC foundations of the law, Uniform Evidence Law 10th Edition is the authoritative resource on the evidence regimes in NSW, the Commonwealth, Victoria, the ACT and the NT.
