Walker and Walker: The Law of Evidence in Scotland gives a comprehensive and detailed examination of the law of evidence in the broadest of civil and criminal contexts.

The emphasis is upon rigorous examination of the issues affecting all who work with the law of evidence whether in court, chamber practice or legal education.

This classic text has been updated throughout and due attention is given to changes in the context of legal proceedings, to changes in the nature of the evidence available to parties, and to the direct impact of the European Convention on Human Rights. Full account is also taken of the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Bill.
