Why does Scotland have the evidence laws it does? This is the first textbook to set the Scots law of evidence against a modern backdrop of legal thought and empirical research. It examines the non-legal dimensions of evidence and proof through the lens of legal philosophy, procedure, sociology, science and psychology to analyse the contexts that affect the handling of facts and the process of proof in Scotland. Drawing extensively on socio-legal research, the book provides an accurate picture of how fact-finding works in Scotland – giving students the foundation for a complete, critical and contextual understanding of Scots evidence law.
