The notes provide an in-depth resource for the legal principles relevant to this course. Evidence needs to be genuinely understood in order to do well - skeletons are useful for this subject but applying them to analyse what is happening in a question is more important. Understanding the cases on the reading guide are your best bet.

In my notes, the cases for the harder topics (character and credibility, tendency and coincidence and hearsay) were read and summarised in greater detail.

Covers all twelve topics:
- the introductory information
- relevance
- competence and compellability
- privilege
- examination of witnesses
- character and credibility
- right to silence
- tendency and coincidence
- hearsay
- admissions
- illegally obtained evidence
- opinion
