EVIDENCE AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
Credit points: 15
This subject deals with the rules of evidence in civil and criminal cases, and with the rules of criminal procedure. These rules have evolved to enable court cases to be conducted in a manner that is deemed to be fair to all parties and, increasingly, to promote the interests of the state in ensuring the 'efficient' disposal of cases by the courts. The law of civil procedure is dealt with in a separate subject. Evidence and Criminal Procedure is a compulsory unit for the LLB. This subject, in conjunction with Criminal Law, meets the requirements of the Council of Legal Education for admission to practice in Victoria in the area of Criminal Law and Procedure. It also meets the requirements in the area of Evidence.
