The first edition of Evidence and the Adversarial Process was published in 1992. Since then the law of evidence has undergone many significant changes, for example to the right to silence, the rules on disclosure, corroboration and the treatment of child witnesses. Despite substantial revision of the original text, the themes of the first edition are retained: to what extent is the content of the law of evidence dictated by the adversarial form of trial, and is it worth retaining? Do the rules of evidence operate in the interests of justice?The new edition is designed not only to interest readers already conversant with the law of evidence but to be used as a text by law teachers interested in a more discursive approach than that employed by traditional evidence textbooks. To this end, it contains more explanatory material than the first edition, and should be entirely comprehensible to the novice. The objective is to provide a self-contained but critical account of the manner in which cases are tried in England and Wales. As such it is ideal for students of law studying for university and professional examinations.

This volume is a systematic study of the rules of proof in English Courts of Equity between the later sixteenth and the early eighteenth century. In this period the proof practices of the Courts of Equity were controversial, as contemporary lawyers saw them as linked to the Civil Law, and some perceived a threat to the Common Law tradition. The reality of this linkage and threat has continued to be controversial among historians. In addition, this period saw the early stages of the development of the Common Law of Evidence, which in modern law is a striking divergence from Civil Law systems. The origins of the law of evidence have traditionally been linked to the need for judges to control the jury, but this view has been subject to several recent critiques. The Courts of Equity did not generally use jury trial. This study considers Equity proof rules in their relationships to contemporary Civil and Canon Law proof conceptions, medieval Common Law rules governing proof of facts, and early Common Law evidence rules. It concludes that Equity courts operated a variant of civilian proof concepts, and mediated an influence of these concepts on the origins of the Common Law of Evidence. These findings cast a new light on the debates on these origins, and on the relationship between the Common Law and Civil Law traditions in early modern England.

Morrow ist kein unbeschriebenes Blatt. Er hat im Gefängnis gesessen, war gewalttätig, hat Frau und Kinder verloren. Nun hat er seinen Namen geändert, wie schon häufiger. Geldsorgen hat er keine mehr seit ihm Tante Corky ihr gesamtes Vermögen hinterlassen, nachdem er sie in den letzten Wochen bei sich aufgenommen hatte. Tante Corky war nicht seine richtige Tante, und Morrow weiß nicht, wer sie wirklich war, welche ihrer Geschichten der Wahrheit entsprechen. Doch eigentlich drehen sich seine Gedanken nur um seine Geliebte A., die er eines Tages kennen gelernt hatte, die ihn mitnahm in Mordens Haus. Eine Frau, der er mit jeder Faser verfiel, und deren Geheimnis er noch imer nicht zu lüften vermag. Morden hatte ihn in dieses Haus geholt, um Gutachten abzugeben über einige Bilder niederländischer Maler zu klassifizieren. Bilder, die gestohlen waren, wie er später erfährt. Morrow wird in einen Sumpf hineingezogen, aus dem er sich nicht befreien kann. Jetzt, da alles zu spät ist, versucht er zu rekapitulieren, was passiert ist. Und er sucht weiter nach A.. »Schreib mir«, hatte sie ihm beim Abschied gesagt, ohne eine Adresse zu hinterlassen. Und Morrow schreibt.

The Law of Evidence has traditionally been perceived as a dry, highly technical, and mysterious subject. This book argues that problems of evidence in law are closely related to the handling of evidence in other kinds of practical decision-making and other academic disciplines, that it is closely related to common sense and that it is an interesting, lively and accessible subject. These essays develop a readable, coherent historical and theoretical perspective about problems of proof, evidence, and inferential reasoning in law. Although each essay is self-standing, they are woven together to present a sustained argument for a broad inter-disciplinary approach to evidence in litigation, in which the rules of evidence play a subordinate, though significant, role. This revised and enlarged edition includes a revised introduction, the best-known essays in the first edition, and chapters on narrative and argumentation, teaching evidence, and evidence as a multi-disciplinary subject.

Fragen zum Sachverständigenbeweis spielen in allen europäischen Rechtsordnungen eine große Rolle. Je größer das verfügbare Wissen der Menschheit wird, desto größer werden auch die Schwierigkeiten der Sachverhaltsermittlung und Rechtsanwendung im Zivilprozess. Gleichwohl wird grundsätzlich angestrebt, dem rechtssuchenden Bürger in einem zügigen, kostengünstigen und transparenten Verfahren zur Durchsetzung seiner Rechte zu verhelfen, was sich aber häufig gerade wegen des notwendigen Einsatzes sachverständiger Personen als schwierig erweist. Der Autor untersucht in dieser Arbeit die unterschiedlichen Konzepte zum Sachverständigenbeweis im deutschen und im - seit 1999 stark reformierten - englischen Zivilprozessrecht. Der anschließende Rechtsvergleich erläutert die Unterschiede der jeweiligen nationalen Lösungsansätze und bewertet sie vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Probleme.
