“The law of evidence occupies a pivotal role within the effective functioning of the judicial system as the existence of substantive rights can only be established by relevant and admissible evidence. It lays down the quintessential aspects of judicial investigation for effective administration of justice. With rapid advances in diverse fields of life, human relations have undergone an unforeseen transformation, presenting new conflicts and controversies. The law of evidence has to subsequently steadily groom itself for facing the emerging developments which pose unprecedented problems within the choice of evidence and proof of facts. Through the years, the Courts through judicial precedents and diverse case law have enriched the lexicon of the law of evidence.
Ratanlal & Dhirajlal’s Law of Evidence is likely one of the country’s so much relied on and respected titles and has been in print for just about a century. The sheer fact that the book has gone through many editions, stands testimony to its intrinsic worth and scholastic wealth. This 26th edition critically analyses the recent case law and captures the recent legislative amendments.
This book is invaluable for practicing lawyers on the entry level, students of law, police trainees and officers, law universities, judicial academies and legal departments. “
