Since its initial publication in 2007, The Evidence Act 2006: Act and Analysis has been the leading and authoritative New Zealand text on the Act. Cited extensively in judicial decisions and academic writing, its section-by-section commentary blends description, analysis and critique in a wide-ranging explanation of the Act, its underlying principles and its individual provisions.

Comprehensively cross-referenced and organised in an accessible format, this 3rd edition provides an updated examination of the Evidence Act and a thorough treatment of noteworthy court decisions (past and present) from the New Zealand Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court. The book also highlights The 2013 Review of the Evidence Act 2006 by the New Zealand Law Commission and previews future amendments to the Act proposed by both the Law Commission and the New Zealand Cabinet.  

The Evidence Act 2006: Act and Analysis (3rd edition) is written by a team of New Zealand’s foremost evidence law academics. They bring their unique perspectives to this latest volume, which provides an inestimable treatment, both scholarly and practical, of the law of evidence in New Zealand today.

Review recommends book for litigators

In a review published in Law Talk, Chris Macklin, senior prosecutor and partner at Gordon & Pilditch, Rotorua, says:

" I would not hesitate to recommend that litigators in particular invest in a copy to accompany them to court. Even if you already have the second edition, it is now showing its age (2010) and the latest edition provides vital and valuable additions to what was already a very good commentary."
