Frequently consulted by judges and practitioners, it has come to be regarded as a work of authority throughout the common law world. It bridges the gap between academic and practical treatments of the law of evidence, containing detailed academic analysis of the law alongside a wealth of practical information about how the law is applied in the courtroom.

The eleventh edition continues to feature detailed coverage of the seminal decisions of the Court of Appeal, interpreting the hearsay and character evidence provisions of the Criminal Justice Act 2003. It provides a clear analysis of how the law has developed in these crucial areas, and practical observations on how the new rules are being applied by trial courts. The book has been thoroughly updated and deals with many important decisions of the House of Lords and the Court of Appeal since publication of the last edition. There have been significant developments in almost every area of the law.

As in previous editions, the author's teaching method is centred around a realistic, though fictitious, criminal case and civil case, presenting challenging evidence issues and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter.

Murphy on Evidence first appeared in 1980 under the name A Practical Approach to Evidence, and its success in providing a readable and practical guide to the subject has been widely acknowledged, not only by law teachers and students, but also by the profession.

Online Resource Centre An Online Resource Centre, authored by Richard Glover of the University of Wolverhampton, accompanies this book, and features twice-yearly updates to the text, a list of web links and the supporting documents for the two fictitious cases.


Readership: Undergraduate or postgraduate students studying modules on the law of evidence on either the LLB or BVC.
