    New to the fifteenth edition

    Case law and legislative developments are thoroughly considered. High Court judgments referred to include:

    • Kadir v The Queen; Grech v The Queen [2020] HCA 1, dealing with exclusion of improperly or illegally obtained evidence (s 138)
    • De Silva v The Queen [2019] HCA 48, where the High Court formulated a suitable direction to the jury regarding the proper approach to defence evidence in the context of the burden and standard of proof (s 141).

    Appellate and lower court judgements have been distilled and incorporated into the work. Key decisions include:

    • Stevenson (a Pseudonym) v The Queen [2020] VSCA 27, regarding the hearsay rule exception for electronic communications (s 71) and proof of evidence produced by processes, machines and other devices (for example, social media)
    • Sidaros v The Queen [2020] ACTCA 11, regarding the requirements for expert opinion evidence (s 79), the discretion to exclude an admission on the basis of “unfairness” (s 90) and the discretion to exclude evidence obtained in “breach of the common law accusatorial principle” (s 138)
    • Hogg v R [2019] NSWCCA 323, in relation to evidence of silence in criminal proceedings in NSW, where the reason for not answering police questions was because of legal advice not to do so (s 89A)
    • DPP (Cth) v Kinghorn; Kinghorn v DPP (Cth) [2020] NSWCCA 48, dealing with legal advice privilege (s 118), waiver of privilege (s 122) and loss of privilege as a result of misconduct (s 125). In terms of legislative development, the 15th Edition considers planned amendments to Part 3.6 “Tendency and coincidence”, agreed by the Council of Attorneys-General.

    With its popular and highly accessible annotated legislation format, and comprehensive commentary, Uniform Evidence Law fifteenth edition is the authoritative voice on evidence law in NSW, the Commonwealth, Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT and Northern Territory.
