The fourth edition of Principles of Evidence strikes a balance between the theory of the law of evidence and its practical application. This edition continues to assess the impact of the Constitution on the traditional Anglo-South African law of evidence, especially with regards to the admissibility of unconstitutionally obtained evidence. It further discusses the statutory provisions regulating diverse matters such as sexual history evidence and the admissibility of electronic evidence.
The presumption of innocence is widely accepted as a fundamental principle of criminal justice. In some countries (like South Africa and Canada) it has been elevated to a constitutionally guaranteed right, subject to a general limitations clause. The presumption of innocence is also found in international instruments and there is much laudatory rhetoric in support of this presumption. There is, however, very little consensus regarding the exact content and scope of the presumption of innocence. This lack of consensus creates considerable confusion concerning the practical application of the presumption. This book is an attempt to secure consensus, and to present some constructive solutions to the various theoretical and practical problems which exist in respect of the presumption of innocence.
A dedicated and innovative teacher, a towering intellect, one of the leading criminal lawyers in South Africa, collegial, supportive and empowering, a veritable polymath, the ultimate free-thinker - these are but a few of the appellations used to describe John Milton. Over a period of nearly forty years John Milton has made an immense contribution to the South African legal terrain as a scholar, a legal practitioner, a teacher, a mentor and a friend. The exemplary scholar - essays in honour of John Milton is a recognition and celebration of this respected academic and his legacy. The high esteem in which he is held by his peers, former students, colleagues and friends, and the broad scope of his influence are reflected in this collection of essays. Though known mainly as a criminal lawyer, Milton's interest and influence have extended to property law, statutory interpretation, the administration of justice, delict, environmental law, human rights, legal education and even outside the law to history.
Teaching Evidence Law sets out the contemporary experiences of evidence teachers in a range of common law countries across four continents: Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. It addresses key themes and places these in the context of academic literature on the teaching of evidence, proof and fact-finding. This book focuses on the methods used to teach a mix of abstract and practical rules, as well as the underlying skills of fact-analysis, that students need to apply the law in practice, to research it in the future and to debate its appropriateness. The chapters describe innovative ways of overcoming the many challenges of this field, addressing the expanding fields of evidence law, how to reach and accommodate new audiences with an interest in evidence, and the tools devised to meet old and new pedagogical problems in this area. Part of Routledge's series on Legal Pedagogy, this book will be of great interest to academics, post-graduate students, teachers and researchers of evidence law, as well as those with a wider interest in legal pedagogy or legal practice.
