Authors at Book Launch

The book was launched by The Hon Kevin Lindgren AM, QC, Conjoint Professor.

Uniform Evidence in Australia provides a comprehensive multi-jurisdictional commentary and annotation to the uniform Evidence Acts of the Commonwealth, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT and NT.

The authors examine recurring challenges in the construction and application of the legislation, including the extent to which it is necessary or proper to resort to pre-Act case law. In so doing, they highlight and explore the tension between the prescriptive nature of some sections and the apparent reliance of others upon pre-existing common law principles.
