    Uniform Evidence Law 14th Edition provides Australia’s leading guidance on the uniform evidence law for barristers, courts, litigators and students alike. With up to a quarter of the legislative provisions reviewed in the courts annually, it is essential to have a current copy at hand.

    UPDATED ANNUALLY

    This new edition is the first time Uniform Evidence Law has released as an annual publication, ensuring customers have the most updated text on the market.

    This currency combines with the unchallenged authority of Stephen Odgers’ commentary to provide the premium product on uniform evidence. The affordable price ensures access to this best-value treatment for practitioners, judges, police and students alike.

    NEW TO THE 14th EDITION - Case law and legislative developments are thoroughly considered. High Court judgments referred to include:

    R v Falzon [2018] HCA 29, on s 55 and 137;

    R v Bauer (a pseudonym) [2018] HCA 40, on ss 66, 97, 101 and 141; and

    McPhillamy v The Queen [2018] HCA 52, on s 97.

    Appellate and lower court judgements since May 2018 have been distilled and incorporated into the work. Key decisions include:

    Antov v Bokan [2018] NSWSC 1474, regarding authentication of documents;

    Meyer v The Queen [2018] VSCA 140 in relation to unfavourable witnesses;

    A2 v R; Magennis v R; Vaziri v R [2018] NSWCCA 174 regarding leading questions;

    Panayi v Deputy Commissioner of Taxation [2017] NSWCA 93 regarding business records;

    King v Muriniti [2018] NSWCA 98 regarding evidence of judgments;

    Singh v The Queen [2019] NTCCA 8 on pre-trial exculpatory accounts by defendant;

    Hoyle v The Queen [2018] ACTCA 42 on expert evidence bearing on credibility of witness; and

    Helicopter Resources Pty Ltd v Commonwealth of Australia [2019] FCAFC 25 regarding the inter-relationship between s 87 and the principles as recognised and applied in X7 v Australian Crime Commission [2013] HCA 29.

    The latest edition also contains reference to several restricted (and thus not generally available) judgments that consider different aspects of the UEL.

    In terms of legislative development, there have been significant amendments to s 41 in the Evidence Act 2008 (Vic) dealing with improper questions, making it substantially uniform with other uniform evidence jurisdictions (except for the Northern Territory).

    With its popular and highly accessible annotated legislation format, and comprehensive commentary, Uniform Evidence Law 14th Edition is the authoritative voice on evidence law in NSW, the Commonwealth, Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT and Northern Territory.
